We are pleased to announce the opening of Takuji Hamanaka solo exhibition “Spiral Passage”, an event synchronized with Arts-Chiyoda-3331 Art Fair.

Takuji Hamanaka is a Japanese artist who practices Japanese traditional water-based woodblock printmaking (Mokuhanga) based on between New York, US and Japan.
Hamanaka had been working with numerous contemporary projects as professional printer, after he had achieved the traditional technique in Japan. He also practices in his own artistic work, representing contemporary images by using traditional technique.
In recent years he has been investigating characteristic effects and materials found in printmaking and use them in unfamiliar context or use them in excessive manner.
One of the project is to focus on typical printing application called “ Bokashi” that is a variation in lightness and darkness of a single/multiple colors by hand applying a gradation of ink to moistened woodblock. This characteristic printing approach is often found in prints by masters such as Hiroshige and other Ukiyo-e artists.
Using these prints in different colors as a starting point, He constructs image by cutting them in various shapes as if one makes mosaic window using sheets of hand blown colored glass. Though obviously quite different materials, there are striking similarities between the way woodcut and stained glass is constructed conceptually. He sees expanding possibility of traditional printmaking by displacing the characteristic idea/effect to attain unique consequence.
In the works showed in this exhibition he tries to make “repetition” which appears also in the natural phenomenon, reflecting it on his artistic action such as repetitive printings, copied images by them, and numerous combinations of collages made of them. However he believes that none of the repetition is similar to the others and that it creates a form like a spiral, which offers us an occasion to recognize locus of the working procedures and of the phenomenon.

This exhibition will be held under the theme “Contemporary Mokuhanga” a concept which has been developing over the world beyond the Japanese traditional technique. The CfSHE Gallery introduces the solo-show of Hamanaka who supports this movement as instructor and also works as artist inside.
We look forward to seeing you at our gallery.
