Although Hagiwara Hideo’s Soil is an abstract composition, the title leads viewers to “read” its intense values and textures as an intentional representation of earth. He achieves the depth and richness so suggestive of the grittiness of soil by printing on both sides of the paper.

Like many woodblock print artists, Hagiwara explored both subject matter and technique by working in series. For the Soil series, he created 22 different prints, all of which investigated different aspects of texture and surface through abstract composition.
