Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Canvas.
This artwork isnspired by Hiroshige, woodcut master from Japan.Work is simultaneously reductive and rich. The negative space is as important as the subjects, allowing observers to fill in the blanks with a wondering mind and wandering gaze. The people are mostly depicted as filled silhouettes or outlines. Their presence seems secondary to the images showed in the background – treelines, mountains. Nature’s aural and physical presence by far overwhelms the human element. Nature represents the old, a flourishing constant, while the people symbolize the new and temporary.
Artwork was part of my solo exhibition in Tokamachi, Japan during September and October 2018.
