Comment
スコットランド出身。日本で木版画を学び、その特質や様々な手法を丁寧に自身の作品に取り入れている。現在は水性木版画を中心に平面及び立体オブジェを制作する。国際的に作家活動を行ってきた彼の独特な色彩感覚や構図へのこだわりは大変魅力的であり、木版技法を用いる事で透明感のある独自の世界を表現している。

Paul Furneax is a Scottish artist. He learned woodblock printing in Japan where his style carefully integrated the characteristics and various techniques into his own work. Now he works mainly with water-based ink on woodblock prints, flat and three-dimensional objects. His sense of colour and focus on composition are very appealing. He creates a unique transparent world with his woodblock print method.
