今井 悠子 / The Flow

---今井 悠子さんからの感想---

日本人が暮らしの中で愛で、育んできたモノたちには、どれも小宇宙があるように思います。日本画の技法を基に試行錯誤しながら制作する中、楮二層紙に出会い、楽しめる幅が増えました。和紙に印刷することで、作品に組み合わせたときにどんな写真でも自然に馴染んでくれます。

紫陽花と並列させた手は、アブダビの労働者たちの手を現地でスキャンたものです。楮二層紙に印刷し、柿渋で染めた和紙に貼り込みました。防水効果のある柿渋の画面にも、未だに密着しているのは和紙の繊維のおかげだと思います。ニューヨーク等で展示した際、その密着感が良かったためか、印刷物だとは思わない方もいらっしゃいました。

Nicole Pietrantoni / Implications and Precipitous

Our materials are part of the content of our work. For this reason, I spend a lot of energy finding the right paper for my books and installations. I want a paper that not only serves my technical needs but creates a delightful tactile experience for my viewer.

Awagami's selection of washi surpassed any other papers I tested - I needed a thin but strong paper that could be suspended as an installation in the gallery, but also felt beautiful and soft when a viewer held it their hands in the book form. The inkjet on Inbe was capable of withstanding the demands of folding, gluing, and bookbinding while maintaining its incredibly crisp and bright image quality.

My most recent work, Implications and Precipitous, uses Awagami's Inbe Thick and Thin washi to create a series of handbound accordion books that expand to create life-sized panoramic images. With a specific interest in printmaking's historic relationship to representation, this work gestures to humans' active role in constructing and idealizing landscape. The overlaid poems by Devon Wootten are appropriations from reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Kent Maske / "Terrain"

Kent Maske's hybrid-print "Terrain" on Awagami Factory Bizan washi -- with PreNeo Press.


I'm deeply enthralled with print media's ability to aid the exploration, facilitation and dissemination of ideas. Printmaking processes, traditional and digital, serve the conceptual development of my images and satisfy my passion for processing thought and working with materials. The finished print, or artist's book, is the outcome, residue and documentation of this journey. I select materials and employ print processes that serve the works meaning. Whether I print on old recycled file folders or handmade Awagami washi paper, the materials employed contributes significantly to how I feel about the work and how the work communicates. I choose Awagami Bizan for its superior pigment printing accuracy and its robust versatility with relief, intaglio and screen- printing. Bizan's sturdy 200 g/m2 sheet only requires a light misting of water before traditional printmaking! The sheets four natural deckles celebrates and honors making things by hand, a characteristic I like to see in my finished prints. I also enjoy supporting businesses that prides itself and cares deeply about the quality of their crafts. Awagami Factory's long history of high-craft is evident in all their products.

Nanette Wylde / Remembering Elephants

Nanette Wylde's hybrid-print artist book "Remembering The Elephants" on Awagami Factory Bamboo washi -- with PreNeo Press.


For a printmaker combining both digital and traditional processes finding the right paper can be a challenge. Making books with these hybrid prints further complicates the search, as paper that is the same and printable on both sides is needed. Awagami's Bamboo paper is an excellent choice. The paper holds up well to soaking after digital pigment printing, and subsequently carries oil-based inks well. After the ink dried from intaglio and relief printing, I found the papers to flattened appropriately when misted and weighted in blotters. The ability to use the same paper in different weights for cover and text block is a nice plus.

Awagami's Bamboo paper is soft, elegant and strong. I was particularly eager to work with it as bamboo is considered sustainable. I like being able to make choices which can be helpful for the planet, and which provide a high quality, tactile aesthetic to my books.

---遠藤さんからの感想---

AIJPでは、インクジェットインクの染み込み具合によってイメージと違う色調になってしまうような問題がほとんどありませんでした。
私の場合、さらにリトグラフを刷り重ねましたが、平版インクとの相性もよく、扱いやすかったです。

---真木さんからの感想---

  
インクジェットプリンターを使った「デジタルプリント版画」と他の版画技法(木版、木版リトグラフ)を併用した版画を制作しています。
一年前ぐらいから貴社の紙を使っておりますが、
印刷時には、発色が良く、滲みが無い細密印刷ができ、尚且つ、木版等の版画の際には、適度にインクが沁み込み快適です。印刷性と版画性、および、価格のバランスで選びました。
