POST HIROSHIGE

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). ‬

February 2019‭.‬
