Soot and Water: Gyotaku Records of Catalina

June 2020 - September 2021
Artists' Plaza Gallery

Conceived in mid-19th century Japan as a way to record impressive fishing catches, gyotaku prints are sublime tributes to the struggle, and the respect, between man and the denizens of the deep. As one of the few artists practicing the traditional Japanese methods involving sumi and washi (ink and paper), Dwight Hwang's remarkable works reveal a tenderness and reverence for both the fish he is immortalizing and the legacy of the gyotaku craft.
