Artist Statement

Rob Collingbourne

This work was inspired by a trip to Japan last summer. We saw many prints like this and I came to appreciate that the beauty of printmaking is to make these beautiful images affordable through crafted reproduction. I was particularly drawn to this print because of the graphic nature of the lightning.
