Notes from DaVic Gallery: ‘Kanguq (Snow Goose)’ – Reductive relief printing is a way of making a multicoloured image from only one block, as opposed to multiple blocks. A reduction print is one that has several states or stages. Each state is printed in a different colour. When cutting the second state, the artist “reduces” or destroys the first state. The block is destroyed in the process, so it is not possible to go back and re-do a state or colour. Elisapee Ishulutaq’s Kanguq (‘snow goose’) is a stunning example of this technique. When Josea heard about the workshop, he told Kyra that he would not be participating. She told him that this was fine and that his participation was entirely up to him. However, by the end of the workshop Josea had been enticed to try this new technique, with extremely positive results.
