RE: Double Take : Finding a Secret Canyon in Hokusai's Great Wave

in #art3 years ago

I've got the biggest smile on my face reading and seeing this post. I have an original print of this Hokusai wave and it's hung framed in my home and I've looked at it every single day since I was 7 years old. I know and love this piece and yes it's so common an image that people don't even look at it anymore. But I do! I love the texture and subtle color values, the power of the feeling held within and rich meaning. Because it's a woodblock print, it has these clean edges and that lend perfectly your topographical exploration. As always, you are wonderfully creative and I so appreciate your work!

I'm so glad you enjoyed this @natureofbeing! Thanks for the support. Yeah it's so easy to let these ubiquitous images fade into the background every time we walk past them. Since you have a special relationship with this print, I'm glad to hear you didn't feel like my transformation was blasphemous! This series of sculptures was as much about forcing myself to take a closer look at these images as it was about creating something new. There are so many details I never took the time to notice!

I found your transformation creative and not at all blasphemous! In fact it focused on an aspect of the print and made me think more about it when it was previously something I acknowledged instinctively but not consciously.

Okay glad to hear it!
