Post Hiroshige is a body of work that continues my interest into Japanese Architecture and representation of space both within artwork and publication form.
The body of work draws inspiration from Historic Japanese Ukiyo-Artist Hiroshige Utagawa. The interest lie in how Hiroshige broke away with traditional mathematical formulas of the time, in-return created a new way of seeing the natural and built landscape.
Colour used within the publication and artworks is the pigment data from Hiroshige Utagawa’s work “Kinryuzan Temple Akasaka c 1830” (Provided by The National Gallery of Victoria, Australia).
Post Hiroshige consists of a series artworks, a set of 3 of hand made concertina books, a limited edition trade publication, along with a series of 3 pop-up cards made in collaboration with Paris based paper artist Nicolas Codron.
