New Moon Foon from RCBz

MinXus-LinXus is happy to present this beautiful A4 composition by RCBz, made after viewing Tsukioka Yoshitoshi’s 100 Aspects of the Moon. Tsukioka is an undisputed master of Ukiyo-e, japanese woodblock printing. It’s very easy to see how his 100 Aspects of the Moon can be a great inspiration for artists today.

Here are a few of my favorites, but you can view the whole collection here, it is worth a little detour.

#60: Received Back into Moon Palace

#73: Jade Rabbit – Sun Wukong

#77: Lunacy – unrolling letters

#97: The moon’s invention

RCBz, this is so creative and extra-ordinary, fantastic work, thank you for sending!

    Amazing is it physical collage or digital collage? Will take detour next.

    There is a link to RCBz’s blog on M-L. He is quite well known in mail-art these days for his digital collage.

    In a blog I wrote about him, I found a quote where he described his work as being influenced by the “West Coast (USA) Surfer School.” Indeed, I understand RCBz better when I put him in the context of California “Old Masters” like Mike Dickau. It’s a kind of super-realism using surrealism, know what I mean? I see David Stafford in this category to some degree.

    In terms, of the USA, MinXus is more East Coast: abstract, conceptual, Rayjo & Fluxus influenced.

    As Mink Rancher says: “That RCBz fella is a piece of baggage from the stagecoach Empress Marie rode in on. She seez he’s her Grandaddy and all, but you got to take that with a grain of salt when it comes from the Empress.”
