Year of the Labbit 2011

Item No.: 322630

Custom Labbit by Ambre Aki Gonzales, Los Angeles, CA

After completing her art degree at UCSB, Gonzales spent time traveling and living in Japan and Australia. While in Japan, Gonzales worked with paper artist Kyoko Ibe, where she learned traditional Japanese techniques for fabricating byoubu art screens as well as aspects of Japanese papermaking. Her new works use print and book arts to explore the role of "craft," "low art" and the "handmade" in the digital-driven 21st century. These works include pochoir (hand-colored stencil) prints that are inspired by street art, woodblock prints, and a complicated love of nature, city life, video games, and sartorial indulgences.

Hand-cut unryu washi, acrylic paint, 4.5"H.
