The artist explains, “The multiple nature of the print medium is its strongest quality, not its weakest. Each print is not unique, but every print is an original…. if you look closely enough each print is slightly different. This work is a vertically arranged diptych printed from the same blocks, in exactly the same way. The repeating motions of the waves, rising and falling day after day. Within that eternal repetition, one day we are born, another day we are gone. The world and myself. All I want to do with my work is to grasp for a second the world’s tail.”

Nana Shiomi (b. 1956) works in the traditional Japanese woodblock technique. Her works often explore the theme of duality – of opposites and contrasts, and many shine a new light on symbols of Japanese culture. She lives and works in London.
