'Influx' was created using the woodcut method of relief printmaking. It is inspired by one of Kean's favorite places to spend time in Hawaii - inside the barrel of a breaking wave. 'Influx' is a limited edition of 20 originals printed on deckled edged BFK Rives Paper.
This woodcut print was created in three different countries. Kean started carving the woodblock in Australia while presenting a demonstration on printmaking with FLUX Hawaii. He finished the carving in Japan while participating in several Hawaii-themed art shows in the summer of 2017. Finally, he printed and completed the process at home on Oahu.
BFK Rives Paper measures 30"x22"
Frame measures 38"x30"x1.5" - constructed with reclaimed pine, stained and finished. Plexiglass window.
