Artwork Description

"A Year in Japan" series - Autumn.

This is a large STRETCHED CANVAS, limited edition print. The edition is combined with my paper prints of 50. The colours of the print are almost identical to the original. The canvas used is very high quality, allowing for precision, high resolution images. I am going with a Matte finish in keeping with the original artwork. The canvas has a mirrored wrap around, but single colours are available. It is ready to hang.

I will not be writing any information nor putting my signature directly on the print, instead I will provide a certificate of authenticity which will be numbered and signed by me. This certificate can be taped to the back of the canvas. I am doing it this way from now on as I will be travelling overseas a lot in 2019. My signature on the original artworks will be visible on the print.

This is the 8th artwork I've created for this series, of which there are 12 - one for each month. The series 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 original artwork was created using Copic markers and coloured pencil. The work depicts a young couple going to a restaurant for dinner. My lone man is walking past carrying his shopping. It is a bittersweet image as the young couple are happy on their way out for a romantic dinner, while the lone man, bathed in blue, walks home alone.
