HIROSHI SUGITO: FRAME AND REFRAIN. Ed. by Yoko Mori. Nohara, Shizuoka, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 128 pp. 30 x 20 cm. ISBN 9784904257319 In English.
Publisher's description: Japanese painter Hiroshi Sugito (b. 1970) trained in the traditional Japanese painting style known as Nihonga. He portrays simple alternative realities, assembling unconventional picture planes bursting with delicate hues and expanding into multilayered realms in different scales from tiny canvases to vast wall works. An essential figure in the Japanese contemporary painting community, Sugito works between abstraction and figurative art and has exhibited internationally since the 1990s. In a long-awaited artist's book / survey catalog, over 50 artworks including paintings, recent drawings and installation pieces shown in the exhibition Hiroshi Sugito: Frame and Refrain (Musee Bernard Buffet, 2015) are featured. The images are printed on translucent paper so the presence of the works show faintly on the reverse -- so one page traces the next. The result is perfect manifestation of his work captured in book form. Exhibited and collected by Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and more. Represented by Marc Foxx Gallery, Los Angeles.
