Comment
若い頃日本に(レジデンス)修学の経験があり、ニューヨークで木版画講師をされています。彼女の木版画作品は日本のモチーフなどを使い版木を回転させ摺るという独自のものでした。和紙を貴重に考え制作する作家です。近年は木版画にデジタルという現代の版を加えても和紙の質感を生かした作品を制作しています。

April Vollmer has had a residency in Japan in the past. Currently she works as a woodblock print instructor in New York. Her woodblock prints feature Japanese motifs and she uses a unique method of turning the block while printing onto paper. Her recent works include woodblock with digital techniques while making use of the characteristic feel of Japanese papers.
