Katsutoshi Yuasa: Miraculous now opens November 9

TAG Fine Arts is delighted to collaborate with New York's ISE Cultural Foundation on a stunning show of recent woodcuts by the young Japanese master, Katsutoshi Yuasa. Miraculous curated by Diana Ewer opens on November 9, 2012 to coincide with New York's print week.  The reception, from 6 to 8pm, is sponsored by TAG and Sake Discoveries Inc.  Please join us for a glass  to celebrate!

The curator and artist will also be In Conversation on Saturday, November 10, 2012, from noon to 2pm.  Attended by the artist, both events present an opportunity to learn more about Katsutoshi's unique woodcutting technique.

Yuasa makes woodcut prints from his own digital photographs. By combining two processes – the camera’s ‘snapshot’ and the woodcut’s lengthy reinterpretation of the same image – he hopes to crystallise the atmospheric and emotional character of his subjects. His pieces take weeks to complete, transforming his ephemeral subjects into haunting images, as beautiful up close as from a distance.
