Gyotaku is an ancient Japanese art form which grew from the need for fishermen to prove the size of their largest catch in a world before photography. Gyo meaning fish, and Taku meaning rubbing or impression is pronounced GEE-OH-TAH-KOO. This very basic printing technique developed over 200 years ago has changed very little over time and is surprisingly simple. Gyotaku involves making a 'rubbing' of the animal by carefully preparing it and then applying ink or paint. A soft, flexible paper or cloth is then used to cover the marine life, making contact in all relief areas. Each print made is unique to the subject, with definitive scales, spikes or shells picked up in the process. These direct prints offer a painterly approach to the realism of form, with an exact replication of the specimen. Charlotte Morgan has taken the majestic king of the crustaceans, the lobster, as her inspiration for this oversized, limited edition of 195 and signed by the artist, fine art giclee print.
