Post Hiroshige is a body of work that explores Japanese architecture and representation of space within artwork and publication formats. The work draws inspiration from historic Japanese ukiyoe-artist, Hiroshige Utagawa. The interest lies in how Hiroshige broke away from traditional mathematical perspective formulas of the time, creating a new way of seeing the natural and built landscape. The colour used within the series and cards is the pigment data from Hiroshige Utagawa’s work “Kinryuzan Temple, Asakusa, c. 1830” (provided by the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia).

This collection of three pop-up cards is a collaboration between artist/photographer Rohan Hutchinson and artist/paper engineer Nicolas Codron. Each card is a separate edition of 100, numbered and signed.

I selected these three photographs in Rohan’s portfolio because of they are neither obvious nor immediate: the watcher/reader needs to pause, wonder, and question their own sense of perspective. The pictures were then broken down into pieces, to be re-assembled and animated in a mischievous way, so to speak, to further the puzzling and questioning induced by the original picture.

In my mind these pop-up cards are also art objects, possibly to be hung, framed or placed as a decoration on a shelf, on your desk, wherever you want to have something beautiful and interesting in your line of sight, that can also be manipulated, opened, moved – enjoyed!
