Ju-Nin To-Iro

This print was created for the 5th print exchange hosted by the Baren Forum in 2000.

What does it say? In its simplest translation: 'Ten people, ten colours'. It can be interpreted (as can most proverbs) in varied ways; the basic idea is that 'There is no accounting for tastes', or perhaps better is 'One man's meat is another man's poison'.

[Baren] members are scattered in countries across the world, and across the range of woodblock printmaking styles. In truth, this group is '180 people, 180 colours'. Yet of course, we are united in pursuit of the same goals. 'Ju nin, to iro' could perfectly be our 'motto' if we had one - it expresses our diversity, yet implies our common purpose.
