Museum of Hiroshige Ando

  • Comment

This museum, for the artist who represents 'ukiyoe'paintings in the history of Japanese art, is composed of a series of wooden structured grids, in terms of the roof and the walls. Along with the changing effects of light, the grids themselves seem to alter its essence. Sometimes they seem to form a solid translucent plane, at others a transparent plane. And the material seems to change according to the weather and the season.

This approach echoes the thinking behind the paintings, which also try to make solid representations of nature and of changes in nature.
