For as long as humans have existed, we have created art. And for as long as we have created art, we have been creating art depicting nature. From cave paintings of buffalo hunts to Van Gogh’s infamous depiction of the view from his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, we have always had the desire to cherish moments of our lives by preserving them within the long-lasting medium of the creative arts.
This exhibit intends to highlight an infinitely small number of those nature pieces created by humankind. From woodprints to ceramics to lithographs, this exhibit showcases the various mediums in which nature’s beauty can be displayed in a digital form. Each page highlights a different creator, their preferred medium, and their depictions of the nature environment in which they surrounded themselves.
This exhibit features 36 beautiful and iconic Japanese woodblock prints (木版画, mokuhanga) available through St. Catherine University’s Fine Art Collection, which were created by 15 Japanese woodblock print artists. Their one-of-a-kind processes and aesthetic styles represent the fascinating history, age-old techniques, recognizable style, and lasting legacy of Japanese woodblock prints.
