Senkichiro Nasaka(1923-2014)


At the beginning of his career, Senkichiro Nasaka produced painted works that appeared to have informel influences. “Hard edge”, “Light Art”, “Kinetic Art”, and his later Gutai works developed into a distinctive style that made use of technology. At the retrospective group exhibition “Gutai: Splendid Playground” (2013) held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, he displayed a recreation of one of his earlier works. The work was made of connected aluminum pipes set within the winding spiral staircase of the museum itself. At the current exhibition, carefully selected informel works from his Gutai period are on display.
