Mishima's predilection for old painting style is conspicuous on his still-life and nude painted by the special pigments invented by himself.
He is very particular about "buttocks" and his expression is very physical and provocative and rather difficult to display at the modest place like Department Stores.
We challenge this time to exhibit all his world.
For this show we decided to pick up the artists who deliver powerful messages about our indigenous world peculiar in Japan and review them in the context of modern world art.
So to say, art is always under the necessity of renewing of its concept and rethinking about its “raison d’être”, or changing relationship between matière and art.
What’s Asiatic or what’s Japanese or Chinese art with respective cultural
background in contrast with the world art? Especially how Japanese culture means in the midst of the world art? We are to present Japanese and Chinese artists who shed lights on this matter.
