KIREI NA MONO
Kirei na mono (“Pretty Things”) is a set of handmade screenprints inspired by the Japanese tradition of woodblock printing and contemporary design principles. Four of the prints — Sakura, Koi, Torii and Karesansui — correspond to spring, summer, autumn and winter, respectively, reflecting Japanese cultural interest in seasonality, transience, and moments in time.
The designs were created in Adobe Illustrator and printed at the Madison College Center for Printing Arts. Translation assistance was kindly provided by Miles Vancura and Hannah Starr-Templeton.
