Award-Winning Woodblocks by Chen Li | Katrine Levin Galleries
An exhibition celebrating the display of Chen Li’s work at THE BRITISH MUSEUM
China’s frontier Yunnan Province is a place of spectacular landscapes and predominantly Buddhist philosophy. It is the home of Chen Li (b. 1971).
Chen Li is a master woodblock printmaker and an extraordinary painter who with a unique vision and boundless originality conveys the life-affirming energy of Yunnan.
In his woodblock prints, Chen Li uses Yunnan’s rare “waste-block” or “suicide” technique that leaves no room for error. All colours are printed from a single woodblock, until the block is destroyed. Only a single edition is possible.
Our fourth solo show of Chen Li’s works coincides with the display of his “Human Buddha” woodblock print at The British Museum, just 8 minutes walk from the gallery.
KATRINE LEVIN GALLERIES showcases and promotes extraordinary contemporary artists from places less explored.
Our promise is art and beyond. In our pursuit of unique masters, we immerse ourselves into their cultures, intimate stories, and places that inspired and informed their art. We commit long-term to a small selection of masters of diverse styles. Our focus is on art of enduring value that brings joy through originality, inspiration, and depth.
EXHIBITION OPENING TIMES Private View: Tuesday, 4 June, 6pm – 8:30pm 10am-6pm | Monday – Thursday 10am-7pm | Friday 10am-4pm | Saturday
