Artist’s Statement

Adrian Holmes is a printmaker devoted to Japanese printmaking. He fell in love with this medium whilst living in Japan and began to study this beautiful craft and its various techniques. He divides his time between his art practice, teaching woodblock print making in the south west and continuing his dedicated study of woodblock print making in Japan. Adrian is currently based at Krowji studio in Cornwall.   

“I’m fascinated by woodblock printing. its versatility, openness and process. It’s a medium which has so many possibilities. I continue to explore this medium balancing the beautiful subtleties of this Japanese medium using a traditional approach with a contemporary style focusing on semi abstract themes of landscapes and place”

Based @ 115 Krowji Studio
