About This Print

A poster promoting Funasaka's 1986 show at Gallery Nakama in Denenchōfu, Tokyo.*  Funasaka's signature irregularly shaped (along one side), vertical forms created from reusable woodblock cutouts march out from the center silkscreened black square which has been divided into four equilateral triangles by hemp twine.

* Gallery Nakama is operating today, but as a gallery specializing in glass.  "In 1982 Masae Nakama opened a gallery called Gallery Nakama in Denen-chofu, which is famous as an upper-class residential area in Tokyo. In the early days of the gallery, it carried various art works such as sculptures, paintings, prints, ceramics and glass works. In 1986 Ms. Nakama traveled to Europe and saw a lot of art works made of glass and met many artists. Especially in the Czech Republic and Germany, artists embodied their rich heritage of glass and created their own works. She was deeply impressed by these, and she was confirmed in her notions of the great possibilities of glass as an art medium. She decided that her gallery would specialize in art works made of glass." [source: http://www.nakama.co.jp/eng/about-us.html]
