Floating Forest

Rising, falling, floating and still, the forest is caught in a moment of bloom. Captivated by the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossoms and memories of a first kiss.This is an obsession with ‘shunga’, which is Japanese for (antique) erotic art. The main medium for shunga was wood block prints, called ‘ukioy-e’ which also means ‘floating world’, referring to an evanescent world, fleeting beauty divorced from responsibilities of the everyday.
