Kiyokawa Taiji: Linear and Three-dimensional Expressions

Overview

The painter Kiyokawa Taiji (1919-2000) pursued a unique type of abstract art based on lines and color planes without relying on the forms of objects. Kiyokawa’s highly ambitious activities were not limited to planar works, but also encompassed three-dimensional pieces. Focusing on lines in the artist’s work, this exhibition introduces Kiyokawa’s paintings in tandem with his stainless-steel sculptures, which like his pictures make use of sharp lines.
