Kazuyuki Ohtsu: Bamboo Notecard Folio


In Kazuyuki Ohtsu’s perfectly balanced compositions we discover places nearly forgotten, tranquil scenes of natural beauty and harmony. His prints forsake an earlier period’s use of strong outlines to rely on rich, elemental colors to depict the countryside of Japan. Bamboo groves set the stage for these two prints. You can practically hear the rustling of their leaves as you delight in the bright camellias and hydrangeas at the forefront of the compositions.

• Decorative wallet-style folio
• Printed in full color on recycled paper with soy-based inks

Kazuyuki Ohtsu

In the perfectly balanced compositions by Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Japanese, b. 1935) we find tranquil scenes of natural beauty, where fallen snow quiets the land and autumn leaves erupt in a riot of color. Born into a family of silk weavers, Ohtsu began the study of printmaking at 19. He apprenticed with celebrated artist Kiyoshi Saito for 40 years. With the passing of Saito, Ohtsu set out on his own career. Like his teacher, he paints the original pictures that serve as blueprints for the hand-carved blocks, then inks the blocks and prints the images. Ohtsu’s artworks forsake an earlier period’s use of strong outlines, instead relying on elemental colors and gentle shapes to depict a harmonious, idealized view of the Japanese countryside.
