‘Morning Mist’ wall hanging (2006) by Fukumoto Shihoko

– I went to the V&A to look at the Japanese collection, specifically to look at the woodblock print, the selection of which was actually disappointing. However, I really like this ‘Morning Mist’ piece by Fukumoto Shihoko.
– Indigo dye on two layers of linen – the variations of tone create the suggestion of a mountainous landscape/aerial perspective.

I like the delicacy and simplicity of this piece and the effect that layering has in creating a sense of space.
