Toshio Shibata 柴田敏雄

Painting

$550.00

The book Painting reveals 16 unpublished colour photographs by Toshio Shibata (柴田敏雄), a Japanese photographer who is known for his rigorous and meticulous compositions. The representation of intimate yet spectacular landscapes — natural, and especially artificial — are at the core of Shibata’s work. In keeping with the tradition of painting that Shibata studied in his early years in 1968, this book celebrates the abstraction of beauty. It has been designed in a concertina format that can also be turned into a suspended object — just like a kakemono (掛物), a Japanese unframed scroll painting made on paper or silk and displayed as a wall hanging.

Toshio Shibata is a contemporary Japanese photographer. He is best known for his large-scale photographs of civil engineering set in the landscapes of rural Japan. “Photography is not something that you can make. It cannot be forced,” he said. “You have to accept the subject.” Born in 1949 in Tokyo, Japan, Shibata studied at the Tokyo University of Fine Arts where he received an MFA in 1974. In 1975, he received a fellowship from the Belgian Ministry of Education to study at the Royal Academy of Ghent. The artist lives and works in Kamakura, Japan. His works are held in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
