Nana Shiomi - Mitate 41 - 60


MITATE (mi-ta-té) refers to a process of thought that Japanese culture has enjoyed since ancient times - a form of analogy, comparing one thing to another.

'One Hundred Views of MITATE' is a series of 100 prints made between 1996 and 2016. Each image has an icon set on a stage. These icons are considered profoundly relevant to Japanese culture and are referred to from antiquity in poems, stories, songs and dances. They are also painted onto pictures, made into pastry, and used as decorations and patterns on kimono fabric.

The viewer is invited to select individual prints from the series, their own associations giving new life and meanings to these worn-out and antiquated symbols of Japanese culture.

This Side and the Other Side, Woodcuts 1996-2016 is published on the occasion of Nana Shiomi's solo exhibition at Rabley Drawing Centre, UK, and the first presentation of the complete woodcut
