Day seven in Naoshima
This series documents my 15-day trip to Japan in April 2019. I wrote and sketched everyday and when I got home I wanted a way to process my experiences so this is the result - a print for every day I was there. I feature in all these prints - I am the large eared fox like character with the stripy jumper!
On this day I arrived in Naoshima , a tiny island in the Seto Island sea , also commonly known as Japan’s art island. I had a magical few days there - I hired a bike ( see if you can spot me ) , enjoyed all of Yayoi Kusama’s pumpkins dotted around the island and found my visit to the Ando Museum absolutely fascinating. I also bathed in the thoroughly kitsch "I♥︎湯" bathhouse and ate the best bowl of ramen on the whole trip.
I print everything from my studio using a small wooden hand press and my etching press. The finished result is unique and original with no two prints being alike.
