Yozo Hamaguchi in Winter: Curtains of Color – Hamaguchi with Yuji Hamada and Sawako Ura
This event has ended.
While living in postwar Paris, Yozo Hamaguchi taught himself the art of mezzotint, a copperplate printing technique featuring subtle shades of white and black. He went on to develop “color mezzotint,” a method of overlapping yellow, red, blue, and black plates in a time-intensive process that lightens copper engravings to produce grainy textures in combinations of light and dark, bringing out gentle nuances of color. This exhibition spotlights the delicacy of color in Hamaguchi’s prints while introducing works by two contemporary artists: photographer Yuji Hamada and textile artist Sawako Ura.
