The prints in 36 Views of Mount Rainier are an homage to the famous Japanese woodblock printmaker Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) and his acclaimed series 36 Views of Mount Fuji. While living in Seattle, Hagman experienced ever-changing views of Mount Rainier, and these impressions of the mountain resulted in a new appreciation of the work of Hokusai. Although originally trained as a painter, Hagman chose the woodblock to capture this mix of city views. She incorporates different natural environments found around Mount Rainier as well as various man-made surroundings such as freeways, cityscapes and bridges. As a result, the thirty-six images elicit various responses, from a sense of bustling urban life to moments of quiet contemplation.
