Katsutoshi Yuasa: Miraculous opens at the ISE Cultural Foundation, NYC

Katsutoshi Yuasa, Pseudo Mythology 2, 2011, oil based woodcut with pigment on paper
I'm delighted to collaborate with New York's ISE Cultural Foundation on a stunning show of recent woodcuts by the young Japanese master, Katsutoshi Yuasa. Miraculous opens on November 9, 2012.  The reception, from 6 to 8pm, is sponsored by TAG Fine Arts and Sake Discoveries Inc.  Please join us for a glass to celebrate!

The artist will also be In Conversation on Saturday, November 10, 2012, from noon to 2pm.

Yuasa makes woodcut prints from his own digital photographs. By combining two processes – the camera’s ‘snapshot’ and the woodcut’s lengthy reinterpretation of the same image – he hopes to crystallise the atmospheric and emotional character of his subjects. His pieces take weeks to complete, transforming his ephemeral subjects into haunting images, as beautiful up close as from a distance.
