Location: 169 School Street
I borrow the title for my new work, "Thirty-six Views of Home" from Japanese ukiyo-e painter and printmaker Hokusai's, “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji,” as they inspired me to create a suite of prints that tell a story from several vantage points. Though I use my immediate surroundings rather than landscapes as my subject, I use traditional printmaking techniques and striking color in keeping with Hokusai's woodblock style of art. In addition, my fourteen year old son, Amos, is exhibiting portraits.
