Title: 48 Hours in Tokyo
Artist: Chris Kirby
About: inspired by a visit to Tokyo over a long weekend during a tropical storm and shortly after a major Japan earthquake. The mixed media elements consist of photography suggesting earthquake warped high-rise buildings, paint application suggesting rain and flooding, neon lighting and lit traditional lanterns - and paper cuttings illustrating areas and suburbs of Tokyo. "It rained incessantly during the weekend. Bright neon lighting reflected vibrant light through the rain and onto the puddled streets. Thinking of media images of recent Japan earthquake devastation created a strong sense of personal concern as I walked the streets".
