Helen Couchman lived and worked in Beijing for seven years, having arrived on the Trans Mongolian Train No. 4 at Beijing Main Station in early 2006. In Epoch, Beijing 2006 – 2012, Couchman presents works created while living in Beijing in an extended studio exhibition. She used printmaking, both etching chine-collé and using a technique new to her but traditional to Beijing – woodblock printing. Couchman’s body of work during her time in Beijing also included installation, photography, drawing, collage, performative pieces, giving talks and tutorials, and publishing books. All were in response to her particular surroundings in those years.
