Colors of the Postwar Japanese Abstract Arts
Yamaguchi Takeo, Dōmoto Inshō, Morita Shiryū, and others
For Asia Week New York 2023, Shibunkaku is excited to present a collection of artworks created by postwar Japanese artists, including Yamaguchi Takeo, Dōmoto Inshō, Morita Shiryū and Inoue Yūichi, at Joan B Mirviss LTD.
The exhibition showcases post-war Japanese abstraction through Yamaguchi Takeo’s oil and watercolor works, Dōmoto Inshō’s iwanogu (natural mineral pigments) on paper, as well as avant-garde calligraphy by pioneering artists, Morita Shiryū and Inoue Yūichi, aiming at highlighting the variety of colors, materials, and practices that were prominent in Japan’s art scene during the postwar period.
We are also presenting a calligraphy work by Hakuin Ekaku, one of the most influential figures in Zen Buddhism who was active in the 17th century. His unique expressions rooted in Zen philosophies and aesthetics have long been the inspiration for many artists, including Morita Shiryū.
This presentation in New York, alongside the ceramic painted works in Painted Clay: Wada Morihiro and Modern Ceramics of Japan presented by Joan B Mirviss LTD, a gallery led by Ms. Joan B. Mirviss, the pioneer, expert and top art dealer of Japanese modern and contemporary ceramics, provides a special perspective on Japan’s dynamic modern art scene. It showcases the innovative techniques that Japanese masters developed as well as their new expression and color to art, both on flat surfaces and curving vessels.
