Yoshio Kitayama has been creating large-scale paintings made with ink on traditional Japanese washi paper since the 1980s. These are mainly comprised of two series. One of these, the “icon” series, are pictoral depictions of enlarged human figures drawn from smaller clay sculptures prepared in advance. The other “universe” works reflect the artist’s unique perception of the world. Both can be considered explorations of figure and ground through the practice of painting.
