This artist is one of the most internationally acclaimed living artists in Japan. Aged 107, she lives and works in Tokyo. All her works are based on abstract but dynamic brush strokes originating from Japanese calligraphy. To Shinoda, the concept and utilisation of the untouched space on the paper is as important as the brush strokes and becomes one with the image. Her lithographs are stone-based and she uses traditional Japanese sumi ink for the brush strokes. She has unusually used silver ink here with gold ink hand-colouring. It is also one of her few works which are on dark blue paper. This work is an AP of an Edition of 38. The artist completed her last lithograph in 2007, and currently focuses on one-off brush stroke paintings. Her works are in the permanent collections of major museums including the British Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY.
