Overview

Exhibition of two sculptural works by the Japanese artist Yoshishige Saito (1904-2001). In Japan, Saito is known as one of the great abstract sculptors of the twentieth century. While Surrealism was the dominant trend amongst the Japanese avant-garde art circles of this time, Saito persisted in producing structural, abstract works. During the Second World War most of his works were lost or destroyed, but Saito continued his work as an artist. After a period of exploring abstract painting, he returned to sculpture, producing large-scale sculptural installations using wooden planks painted with black laquer. Two of these sculptures, Continuation 2 (1987) and Continuation 3 (1987), are on view at this exhibition.
