Scottish, b. 1967
red to grey baren sujizuri ground, with artist's circular seal Binnie at lower right corner, numbered, titled and signed in pencil on the bottom margin, 10/30, White Cat, Paul Binnie, ca. June 2004
oban tate-e 16 3/4 by 11 1/2 in., 42.7 by 29.1 cm
For each design in the Edo Ink (Edo zumi) series, Binnie produced non-tattoo versions in smaller editions of only thirty impressions. The alternate palettes emphasize the nudes themselves, juxtaposing the exposed skin against rich red or pink grounds, and eliminating the ukiyo-e references found in the cartouches, signatures and pictogram seals.
