This compelling series of cyanotype images by Granville, Ohio artist Nicholas Hill explores ideas of place, visual associations and memory using drawing, printmaking, and photographic techniques to create graphic compositions that reflect Japanese script and landscape. The work is inspired by a calligraphy lesson book found by the artist in Kyoto, Japan and the traditional Japanese dying technique, aizome.
