The Floating World Solo Show 2010

The Floating World Solo Show 2010

The Floating World paintings were made after time spent in Kyoto and Nara in Japan during the winter of 2009. The series included the first of my black framed Cabinet Paintings; influenced by the Western tradition of highly finished small works dating back to the 15th Century, combined with the minimalist simplicity of Japanese carpentry and lacquer work. The series of small paintings, all oil on panel, are framed under museum glass in deep matt black box frames.
