One of the attractiveness of the works of Yozo Hamaguchi (1909-2000), who was internationally active as a copper-plate artist in the 20th century, is the beauty of the motif that stands gracefully with a background in black suggestive of deep darkness.
Watermelons, cherries, butterflies, etc., are drawn not as they look but as lives born in the new world created by Hamaguchi and are wearing soft light and mysterious atmosphere. They might be objects expressing invisible image or symbol.
The calm world of his works unfailingly resonates with the viewers strongly even time passes.
In this exhibition, about 60 works are exhibited, mainly copper-plate prints.
