“XYLON!”The art of relief printing from Sweden
Xylon means wood in ancient Greek, a material human beings got to know early on and made images and imprints and books from, predecessors to the mass production of our time. Xylon has also given name to an international artists alliance, started in the 1940s in Belgium by Masereel and has by now spread all over the world.
Today Xylon does not only mean wood. It includes all kinds of media that uses reliefs to print, from nature to synthetic material, metal, photo media, and artist books. It has always retained its magic.
Now for the first time we present the art of Swedish relief print on a larger scale in China. It gives us a reference, a chance to compare between our two cultures that have long experiences of the art, to see what and how it has happened, and where it leads us.
