A Work of the Month

Arimoto Toshio

Dry lacquer, hand colored, 20/20
Click to view the enlarged image

Arimoto Toshio is known for his mystical style incorporating Western Fresco paintings and Japanese Buddhism. He passed away at the age of 38. This piece was created using a technique called Kanshitsu (dry lacquer) that has traditionally being used for sculpting Buddha. Arimoto Yoko, his wife, states that the three dimenstional work expresses Arimoto's intention straightforwardly. Arimoto was very fond of utilizing his crafty skills, and created wood carving pieces in-between his painting production. There is a certain warmth and nobility in this piece that reminds us of sacred sculptures.
