PICTURES OF THE FLOATING WORLD

'Pictures of the Floating World' (Ukiyo-e) is a body of work which exposes the dualism of Japanese culture both within its own society and in its inexorable links with Western culture. Internal and external relationships are challenged using philosophical and material references from both East and West. The foundations of the imagery are inspired by traditional and contemporary Japanese art forms which capture the spirit of their time using exaggeration, fantasy, parody and satire.
