Human and Universe: A Drama

Human and Universe: A Drama - Fukita Fumiaki, Horii Hideo, Nagaoka Kunito

 

It is with great pleasure that we present Human and Universe: A Drama, and we

are honor to introduce the three artists in pursuit of their original expression in

print making.

FUKITA Fumiaki was born in Tokushima in 1926. After the graduation from the

Tokushima normal school, he began print making in the wake of the art

education for pupils. His invention of new techniques with plywood, lauan-wood

and oil-based ink let him gather attention as an artist. In 1969, he was engaged

as a teacher at Tama Art University and trained many youngers. His motifs

such as stars and fireworks in vivid colors show us a magnificent world of art.

HORII Hideo, born in Ibaraki in 1934, studied oil painting at Tokyo University of

the Arts and approached print making by himself after the graduation. His print

works soon came to be appraised at home and abroad, having many

opportunities of presentation. In his world of art are living caricatured

humans in the nuance-filled shaded color of aquatint. He died from an

illness in 1994 at the age of 60, while being much anticipated further

activeness and development.

NAGAOKA Kunito was born in Nagano in 1940 and studied design in Tama Art

University. His career began as a graphic designer but he moved to the West

Germany 1966, where he learned print making at the State Academies. He

received publicity in the works of scenic view, in which the earth are redefined

as an indeterminate construction, a natural or an artificial one. Since 1980s, he

has been mainly working with various materials derived from plants.

Even though each world of the three artists are quite different, all those three

make use of their own techniques effectively with brilliant colors, and express

the relation of human beings and the world in unique ways.

In addition, the works exhibited here are mostly donations of late years for

deep understanding our museum activities of collection and research on

modern Japanese prints. We hope you enjoy the aspects of humans and the

worlds around human beings that are created based on the artists' skillful

techniques.
