Coming Soon! “Fifty-two Views of an Imaginary City”

imaginarycity823
This summer, mostly during the course of an artistic residency at the Maison Gai Saber in Leigné-sur-Usseau, France, I began work on a long series of watercolours depicting the sights of interest, neighbourhoods and inhabitants of an imaginary city called Sensuka. Inspired by Ando Hiroshige’s One Hundred Famous Views of Edo (1856-1859), as well as by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities (1972), my aim with these images and their accompanying explanatory paragraphs is to explore various emotions and ideas associated with cities and city life (as well as any other emotions or ideas that may be running about my head ). My plan is to create 52 imaginary views, and ideally to post one every week on this website for a year. Look for the first installment at the beginning of September. http://maisongaisaber.com/hello.html
