Ana Popescu

Japan Series 32 - Februar 2024

Paradise is a series of 32 paper collages from the artist’s stay at PARADISE AIR artist-in-residency program in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, Japan, in April 2023.

The series works as a visual diary of everyday impressions between Matsudo and Tokyo, linked by the Joban train line.

Details of buildings, the relation between light and shade, combined with bright colours portray a feeling of the peaceful but also busy life of everyday Japan.
