SHINODA Toko (b. 1913) - lithograph

Sprout

1979

28" x 21"

SHINODA Toko is the "doyenne" of contemporary Japanese art. Now 107, the artist is known for the stylistic calligraphic brushstrokes that she brings to life in both her lithographs and her paintings, often in black and any of a mind boggling variety of grays. It is because of the intentional breathing room she gives her compositions -- the juxtaposition of empty space and deliberate, controlled brush strokes -- that her work is so vibrant and alive.

Shinoda-san has not released any lithographs since 2007 so this is a rare gem. I am presently concentrating on her paintings, a few of which you can view here.
