Size and Specifications
This is a large, unframed, limited edition print. It is titled and signed. The edition number is 4/50. The colours of the print are almost identical to the original.
For this print I have used a high quality, medium textured cotton rag with a matte finish. French cold press, natural, off white. 320gsm, acid free. The paper colour and weight are more in keeping with the paper used for the original. You can see the texture of the paper in the photos.
The dimensions are for the size of the image. There is a border around the image for framing, which also has my signature, title and edition number on it.
This is the seventh artwork created for my 'Year in Japan' series. This piece represents a month in Spring. The series focuses on everyday scenes in Japan, each one featuring a lone man walking away from the viewer near the centre of the work. This series of 12 artworks captures everyday scenes in Japan in an attempt to convey the Japanese phrase 物の哀れ 'mono no aware' - the gentle sadness of things. This refers to the ephemeral, transitory nature of the world, which in turn evokes a greater appreciation for things which are quick to disappear, such as cherry blossoms. The scenes I portray are fleeting moments in time, where the figures, objects and light will only be in that exact state for a moment, never to be repeated. Furthering this concept, each piece also represents a different month of the year, highlighting the passage of time through the seasons. The works all feature a lone man with his back to the viewer, giving a glimpse into the life of a faceless stranger. The style I used was inspired by Studio Ghibli animation and traditional Japanese woodblock prints.
The print will be posted rolled in a tube.
