Hiroshi Ariyama - Our City, Our Neighborhood        Original Screen Prints
My screen prints featured here is called “OUR CITY, OUR NEIGHBORHOOD”. This series is comprised of simple urban scenes that enhance some aspect of reality through a very graphic manipulation of light, color and texture.

My intent is to capture an emotional point in time within each scene whether it be nostalgic reflection, simple observation, or a happy glance into a moment’s fleeting possibilities.

Screenprinting allows me to reduce the idea to its simplest form or
to be as detailed and complex as I want. The repetitive nature of printmaking gives me a chance to experiment, adjust, and sometimes encounter those happy accidents that are all part of making art.
