The series of 3 woodcuts in their title refers on the one hand to the classical genre of the „Ukijo-e” (Flowing World), a name of a genre of Japanese painting and printmaking, on the other hand also to the element water in general. At the same time, each single graphics in their respective design, composition, specific graphic means and finally their individual titles allude to 3 well-known woodcuts by Katsushika Hokusai: “Kirifuri Waterfall”, “The Great Wave of Kanagawa” and “Yoro Waterfall “.
The basic visual idea of this print series is that of image manipulation and the associated critical questioning of the visible: To what extent can a new visibility in the midst of the virtualized visible rediscover the artistically “invisible”?
