Another Ukiyo-e series
I like this one; I love this one also, …
How the world will expand, if you have all your favorite Ukiyo-e and mix them.
“Ukiyo-e remix” was born out of these thoughts.
Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Hiroshige
Humbly cutting, pasting, and mixing these great masters’ works as you please.
Feeling fear and fascination, we retouch these complete structural beautiful works.
The art of digital processing enables the retouching of woodblock prints: woodblock print is the most exclusive work of analog processing.
In short, modern technology enables the expression of “Ukiyo-e remix” as a form of art.
Well, these great masters are amazed, or they are laughing with admiration saying, “You did it!” in heaven.
We attempted to mix these most favored Ukiyo-e, “Fine Wind, Clear Morning,” which is famous as Red Mt. Fuji, “The Great Wave off Kanagawa,” which pleased foreigners the most, and “Fukawaga Suzaki Jyumantsubo,” with a powerful sea eagle. As you see, the new sensational world is created.
We put together the most appealing points from three works in this Ukiyo-e remix: the powerful body of the sea eagle and the beak from “Fukawaga Suzaki Jyumantsubo,” the surface and peak of Mt. Fuji from “Fine Wind, Clear Morning,” and rising cap of splashes from “The Great Wave off Kanagawa,” for strained and tension, and immeasurable concentration.
This moment is like a miracle minute.
Does the sea eagle attempt to jump into the splash of the wave?
Does the wave almost swallow the eagle?
Or, is imposing Mt. Fuji shutting off the eagle and big waves?
The intensified moment of the three works is integrated into a piece of image and this becomes the most powerful work we have never seen before.
“One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” “Fukawaga Suzaki Jyumantsubo”
If we look at it closely, we can see loose wooden barrels from somewhere among the waves under evening sky at a snow-covered land.
We feel chilly even though we are just looking at this scenery. However, the great existence of the sea eagle wipes off the coldness.
This work shows great angles.
We can appreciate quietly and almost hear the flapping of the wings and racing of the heart of the eagle studying its prey from this lively work.
“Thirty-six Great Views of Mt. Fuji” “Fine Wind, Clear Sky”
Hokusai depicts the unique phenomena of Mt. Fuji: Mt. Fuji can be seen in red receiving sunlight early in the morning. Actually, it is said people will get good luck if they see this scene. From that, people think that this work represents a good fortune. Hokusai fully expresses Fuji’s great view by illustrating blown cirrocumulus clouds in the clear blue sky and the reddish surface of the mountain: this illustration moves us.
“Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji” “Great Waves off Kanagawa”
It is said that Hiroshige spent about thirty years to master the depiction of these great waves. We can see the contrast between the hollow of the great waves and a tiny unsecured boat that is carrying people. Beyond this dynamic and thrilling scene, Mt. Fuji quietly watches the scene from far away.
Movement and silence enables this work in a fine balanced composition.
