Post Hiroshige continues my interest in Japanese Architecture and the representation of space within artwork and publication formats.
The body of work draws inspiration from two genres of historic Japanese Art, Ukiyo artist Hiroshige Utagawa, along with Japanese Publication Design of the late 1960s and early 1970s, in particular the Kamera Mainichi Journals.
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).
Photographs were created in the Japanese City of Sapporo,
Each book is handcrafted and an edition of 8 + 2 AP.
