"Reflections" is the fifth artwork for my second series "A Night in Japan". The original was created using Copic markers and coloured pencils.
This is a LARGE, unframed, limited edition print. The colours of the print are almost identical to the original. For this print I have used a high quality, textured paper. The paper colour is slightly off white and more in keeping with the paper used for the original. You can see the paper in the last photo.
I've included a photo of the framed original as an example, the print is not framed. The dimensions are for the size of the image. There is a border around the image for framing.
I will not be writing any information nor putting my signature directly on the prints, 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 framed work. 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 prints. This will also give you the option of framing so only the artwork is visible.
This series continues from my first series, 'A Year in Japan', yet focuses on a single night in Tokyo. There is no longer a 'lone man', instead, a variety of people are shown, each going about their lives on this one night which binds them together. My influence for this series is also drawn from the film Blade Runner, a film loved for it's dystopian, 'Neo Tokyo' nighttime scenes. As with my first series, I am attempting 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, this series depicts scenes from a single night in Tokyo, highlighting the ephemeral quality of time.
"Reflections" focuses on the reflected lights of a Tokyo building and shops. Two men are walking down the street, giving scale to the building. It is a very modern, architectural, urban piece, which illustrates the vibrancy of Tokyo city. The style I used was inspired by Japanese animation and Impressionism.
