Shadows of the Floating Worlds: Paper Cuts by Hiromi Moneyhun

Exhibition Website

Jun 10 2016 - Sep 18 2016

The Kyoto born artist Hiromi Mizugai Moneyhun has developed a unique artistic voice that combines traditional Japanese art forms and the bold intensity found in contemporary graphic illustrations. 

Hiromi’s three-dimensional cut paper pieces are the result of a multistep process which produces an art that is at once lighthearted fantasy and startlingly alive. This exhibit will explore works from the artist’s Ukiyo-e (Pictures of the Floating World) series, which celebrates the high-fashion courtesans of Japan’s 18th and 19th century pleasure quarters.
