Subtle equilibrium

2019.09.13(Fri) - 2019.10.06 (Sun)
Part of my own work has been carried out in the developing of interest in Japanese prints in, of all places, Kazakhstan - now officially spelled Qazaqstan, but pronounced the same way.  After our recent hurricane I rushed from Tokyo to Almaty to open an exhibition of around one hundred prints by some nine Japanese artists.  After 6 visits I  knew that print art had not yet arrived in this only 28-year old country and I wanted to show a variety of pieces whose vast subject matter and wide technique of producing - woodblock, etching, lithograph, silkscreen- all would impress the local audience with a new interest in art. The exhibition is been held at the Kasteyev state museum of arts until October 6th.
