Edo Skin

Edo Skin

Here is where you would write a summary or description of this piece


Japanese cherry blossoms part to reveal ontological realms beneath the floral mantle. Under the drape of splendor, the verity of a society’s inequities may be glimpsed in a moment of lucidity. It was said, in a speculative biographical film on the enigmatic Japanese woodblock print artist Sharaku, that “life during the Edo period (1615-1868) was like cherry blossom viewing over the mouth of hell”.
