David Kutcher // Moonlit Sea Prints

Moonlit Sea Prints came about from my love of Japanese woodblock prints. While I have a degree in fine art and concentrated in intaglio printmaking, it wasn’t until a chance discovery of a Japanese art gallery while walking home from work in NYC that I found a passion for these prints, specifically the late ukiyo-e and shin-hanga periods (mid 1800s to mid 1900s). Their scenes, moods, and striking quiet beauty is something that I appreciate in the prints, but also when I see it out in the world. As an avid fly fishermen spending as much time as I can in the water in remote woods, I find I take these images with me wherever I go. I hope you will as well.
