Gyotaku Art: “Every Fish Has A Tale” Exhibit

As a fiber artist, Becky has always been fascinated by various surface design techniques. Exploring new dimensions and inspired by patterns and colors found in nature led her to an ancient Japanese printmaking technique called gyotaku or fish rubbing.

Living in Minnesota lake country was beneficial in becoming familiar with fish and the tales and memories that go with the sport of catching them. It was a natural extension to apply this interest to the technique of gyotaku. Becky has been making gyotaku fish prints for several years. She continues to enjoy creating these amazing detailed impressions of fish as a unique one-of-a-kind original piece of art, or simply as a record of someone’s prize fish.
