“200th anniversary of Sharaku” 1995
This work was shown at an exhibit to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of artist Toshusai Sharaku. Sharaku’s Okubi-e is expressed using simple elements based on nine circles. Even while boldly adding arrangements in a modern fashion, an impression of the original work remains in morphology and colors for a fine balance.
