Shibunkaku participates in Art Basel Hong Kong 2022 with a solo exhibition of ground-breaking abstractionist, Yamaguchi Takeo. “Yamaguchi Takeo: Simple Form” will be coinciding with the hundred-twentieth anniversary of his birth. This presentation explores the artist’s painting through a selection of works from the late 1940s to the early 1980s. From representative art to ever-more simplified abstraction, it gives a cross-section of the artist’s experimental approach to form, color and tactile that would eventually result in extreme reduction of composition yet produce a strikingly modernist and powerful impression.
A selection of works from the physical show is also on display on Art Basel OVR: Hong Kong.
