The Fuji Collection

The perfect symmetry of Mt. Fuji against the Japanese skyline is known to every artist.  A dormant volcano, a giver and taker of life – creator and destroyer with the power of a god.  Reverance given to “Fuji-San” by the Japanese people is an expression of love and respect represented in many historical and contemporary works, including Ukiyo-e, the art of Japanese Woodblock Printing.  After living in Japan for 6 years, I have also come to view this sacred mountain as a constant present in daily life as it greets me every morning and evening – always towering above as a Protector.  I strive to interpret these mystical interpretations of this mountain as inspired from this realization, as well as inspired by Hokusai’s Japanese Woodblock Prints.
