Scholten Japanese Art is pleased to be participating in the upcoming International Fine Print Dealers Association Print Fair opening next Thursday, February 15th at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. In addition to exhibiting a classic selection of Japanese woodblock prints by Edo Period masters such as Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) and Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), they are delighted to announce that for the first time Scottish printmaker Paul Binnie (b. 1967) will be attending the fair and demonstrating both woodblock carving and printing in the gallery’s booth.
Scholten has had a long-term connection with Binnie, who is internationally known as one of the leading exponents of traditional style printmaking, and his work can be found in many important collections worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York City and the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of Asian Art in Washington D.C.
Binnie trained in woodblock printing in Tokyo for almost six years from 1993, and the gallery just celebrated his thirtieth year of printmaking with a highly successful solo exhibition in 2023.
Binnie will be present at the gallery stand during the four days of the fair and will demonstrate both carving and printing on alternate days. A wide selection of the artist’s work will be available to view, including some rare and highly sought-after designs, as well as new works and a preview of upcoming print projects.
