Ukiyo, the Floating World Collection
Ukiyo-e (literally “pictures of the floating world”) is the name given to popular paintings and prints (scenes from history, folk tales, cities, travels, nature, landscapes and erotica) during the Edo period in Japan. My work wants to be a tribute to the wonderful land of Ukiyo. I have chosen to portray this by means of a brief narrative about the natural and urban landscape, a story in which man may be absent from the scene, but is fully present in terms of his achievements and his choices. Clear images (Shiro) and dark images (Kuro) appear to be two distant universes, yet they are linked by a strong bond whose roots are to be found in the legacy of a thousand- year-old culture, ranging from popular art to a profound respect for mankind and nature.
