The diver by Tine Guns
Signed copies available
The Diver focuses on the way our mind creates a story out of two or more fragments of an image.
I once saw an exhibition of Hokusai, and besides the genius drawings I was particularly interested in his manga, or sketches, and books where one image was spread in two frames. I started to look into it and also took a closer look at the work of another Japanese master: Osamu Tezuka. More specifically, their use of the frame or the panel was a great inspiration. The transitions between the frames and especially the ‘aspect-to-aspect panel transitions’ that define Osamu Tezuka’s manga were very important in the construction of ‘The Diver.’ Tine Guns
