ABOUT THE ART

I am deeply inspired by the masters of Japanese Ukiyo-e painting, and aim with my pieces to convey a deeply evocative and somewhat reminiscent picture of a past both foreign and beautiful, where notions of time and enjoyment had very different connotations.

I have chosen to mix drawing, painting and digital collage to mix and match pieces present in my favorite Ukiyo-e pieces – some very well known and others anonymous and underground – because it provides me with a freedom of expression that is not limited by genre or nomenclature.

In this piece I have gone back to the timeless master: Hokusai, and remixed pieces from four different ukiyoe prints.
