Daisen-in is a smaller temple located within the Daitokuji Temple, one of the five most important Zen Buddhist temples in Kyoto. It was built between 1509 and 1513, and is renowned for its rock gardens. Kazuyuki Ohtsu’s woodblock print gives its own interpretation of the garden and the peaceful contemplation which ensues. The beautifully subtle grainy effect is achieved through multiple printing techniques of the woodblock.
In collaboration with Hanga Ten, this is part of a series of prints celebrating the works of contemporary Japanese printmakers.

Kazuyuki Ohtsu is one of Japan’s most established living woodblock print artists, and his works are currently held in permanent collections worldwide.
Having originally trained under Kiyoshi Saito (1907-1997), a forefather of the sosaku hanga movement and considered one of the finest woodblock artists of the 20th century, he developed his own style of woodblock prints which are appealing in their distinctive imagery of serene and quiet landscapes. Ohtsu's practice often involves travelling to the location of his scenes before embarking on the image. Most of his works utilise four to five woodblock plates, with ten to twelve printing stages.
Ohtsu’s prints bear witness to the long tradition of woodblock printmaking in Japan. Currently, in his early eighties, Ohtsu still produces three to four woodblocks a year.
