36 Views of Mount Rainier - After Dawn
36 Views of Mount Rainier

After Dawn I Mount Rainier, Washington I 2006-2009


Artist – Kristina Hagman

These prints are a part of a series of prints named “36 Views of Mount Rainier” inspired by the great woodblock prints of Japanese printmaker Hokusai who did 36 views of Mount Fuji. Living for 14 years with in view of Mt. Rainier I was inspired by the mountain every day. It took me Five years to do all 36 plane air watercolor paintings and slowly turn them into woodblock prints.

Like Hokusai who traveled all around Fuji depicting the mountain from many different vantage point I traveled around Mount Rainer and viewed it from very side, from High up on the mountain to seeing it in the distance from the midst of the urban Environment.

By the time I carved and printed The Heart of the Mountain and Big Rainer Opal in 2010 I had looked at the mountain so much that it had become somewhat abstracted for me. The Mountain was constantly in my dreams and one night I dreamt it was the celebrity on the cover of interview magazine.

About the Artist

Kristina Hagman| www.mumora.com

I am a wood block print artist and painter. I grew up in Los Angeles, where I developed a fascination for the curved structures of the freeway. Back in LA after 33 years away, I am currently working on a series of woodblock prints, “The West Coast: From Canada to Mexico.”

When I lived in Seattle, I focused on depicting Mount Rainier from many different vantage points inspired by Hokusai and his “36 Views of Mount Fuji.” I created the woodblock series, “36 Views of Mount Rainier,” which were exhibited at Pacific Asia Museum in Summer 2012.

My education is non-traditional. I was mentored by many Artists in Santa Fe New Mexico, where I drew from the figure in the John Sloane Drawing group. While there, I also studied with Bay Area figurative artists ,Wayne Thiebaud, Nathan Oliveira, and Richard Diebenkorn at the Santa Fe Institute of Art. I learned printmaking from Ron Pokrasso of Graphics Workshop and Sheila Coppola of Sidereal Press.
