Xue Song, Spring Colors, 2022

Working together with Xue Song, Loftyart is proud to present a series of handcrafted, limited edition, silkscreen prints, each signed and numbered by the artist. The series takes Xue Song’s iconic style and transforms it into printed images through an extensive printmaking process. Every detail of each image is divided into individual screens and colors, and then layered back together, forming the composition piece by piece in a high number of runs. The process draws on the latest contemporary printmaking techniques and meets all the challenges of recreating the highly-detailed nature of Xue Song’s style of collage.

The original painting was acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2017 as the composition bore resemblance to masterpieces of 15th Century landscape paintings in the MFA’s collection. Like the famous Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644) examples, Spring Colors depicts an idealized and prosperous landscape, featuring rising mountains and expansive waterways. The presence of scholars sitting leisurely along the bank symbolize harmony between man and nature.
