POST HIROSHIGE

POST HIROSHIGE

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.
