Post Hiroshige 


The body of work draws inspiration from two historic design systems in Japanese Art; Ukiyo-e artist, Hiroshige Utagawa, and his representation of space, and design trends in Japanese journals and photo-books of the 1960s and early 1970s.


Through experimentation with traditional perspective formulas and that of Kara-e and Yamato-e, Hiroshige transformed the representation of architectural and natural landscapes, breaking away from the mathematical order used in artwork of the time to present a new visual realm. This experimentation with space can also be seen in Japanese photo-books of the 1960s and early 1970s. 


The body of work explores these design systems, within artwork and publication form.
