Anne Farrer's talk
A tremendous thank you to Dr. Anne Farrer for an incredible talk about modern printmaking in China. She brought the prints to life through a fascinating explanation of techniques and influences, and beautiful imagery. Xu Bing's reduction print, "Five Repetitions Series – Crop Fields, 1986", showing the deconstruction of the reduction print process, is a must see - at the Muban Educational Trust.
The talk was presented as part of the solo exhibition: Reflections in a Blue Lake: The Woodblock Prints of Chen Li, February 2018, London
