EXHIBITION: Paul Furneaux: Outside Inside - Japanese Woodcut Prints and Sculptures

Paul Furneaux taught at the Edinburgh College of Art before taking an MA at Tama Art University, Tokyo, studying traditional and contemporary techniques in Japanese woodcut printing.  He was awarded the prestigious Monbusho Japanese government scholarship from 1996-2000 and with this support completed his studies, returning in 2001 to take up a post as artist in residence at the Royal Museum of Scotland.

The main focus of Paul's work is Mokuhanga (the Japanese term for a woodcut print), using ancient techniques of cutting wood with a variety of specialist knives and gouges. The wood is then dampened and watercolor applied with specialist printing brushes.  Paul prints onto Japanese paper using a baren (a disc wrapped in bamboo leaf), often applying his prints to found and made sculptural objects. In recent years he has exhibited both nationally and internationally.

Private View: 6:30-8.30pm on Thursday 22 October 

Illustrated Artist Talk: 6.30-7.30pm on Wednesday 4 November
