About the Artist
Carol Wilhide Justin graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2017 with an MA in Print. She was awarded a residency to study Japanese woodcut in Japan from Japanese sensei.
She now makes Japanese woodcut prints exclusively using her own digital photographs and drawings taken from the natural world. The camera’s ‘decisive moment’ and the woodcut’s lengthy interpretation of the same image allow for the subject be crystallised in an emotional and atmospheric way.
Since graduation she has won the Travers Smith CSR Award (RCA) and has been in many exhibitions notably regularly showing at the RA Summer Exhibition and the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair where in 2018 she was awarded the Intaglio Printmaking Prize and last year exhibited her 16 metre installation ‘Water’. Next year she is due to deliver a paper to the Mokuhanga International Conference in Nara, Japan. She lives and works in London.
Her work is held in the Clifford Chance, RCA, CfSHE ,Tokyo, Awagami, Japan and V&A Print Collections.
