Ukiyo-e Re-mix Series:
Fight or Flight

February 18–April 19, 2009

Continuing the visual history explored in The Samurai Re-Imagined: From Ukiyo-e to Anime, Moira Hahn’s work fuses Ukiyo-e, or pictures of the floating world, iconography and style with images from contemporary culture and her own fertile imagination. Hahn re-imagines scenes found in traditional Japanese prints, transforming human samurai into ferocious yet elegant feline and avian warriors.
