Ukiyo 浮世, "floating, fleeting, or transient world"
Unlike some of our New York peers, we have a different understanding of the artists work space. Our belief is that to predetermine a series of art is in opposition of the artists function in society. While the market creates this pressure of "sameness" in an individuals body of work, we are determined to maintain a space of spontaneous manifestation rather than branding our materials.
The word Ukiyo is from the Edo-period of Japan that describes a pleasure-seeking lifestyle. There is no direct translation of Ukiyo in English. Ukiyo-e is a style of art (17th-19th century) in which the characters & places of the Ukiyo lifestyle are celebrated through wood block prints and paintings.
