Araki Nuboyoshi Portfolio: Diptychs from `Tokyo Nude` and ‘Shi Sha Shin’
The new Araki diptychs consist of nude and Tokyo landscape positioned on the left and the right respectively with the artist’s own calligraphy called ‘Sho’ in Japanese. Although the combinations of images look heterogeneous, their continuity creates seductive atmosphere even in the landscapes. Araki achieved his personal best by sending strong messages with his own hand writings on the paired works. In addition, the artist gave forever lasting life as intended with the platinum printing technology to the unique works. The portfolio includes three diptychs in a folding case, which has the artist’s ‘Sho’ on the front and inside covers. The artist’s signature is on the inside cover.
