"Awajishima landscapes" is a set of six prints I made during a residency in southern Japan.
It's a reflection about the horizon, about how the horizon's line transforms the geographical location (a physical place) in a landscape (a space of feeling).
And to do it, I used the traditional japanese-method woodblock, called moku hanga, that involves the use of watercolours, gradation and emptiness.
