About This Print

A small, postcard size, print by Kusaka from his continuing series of prints carrying the title Work [作品 (sakuhin)] begun in the early 1960s.  This series began with some reference to identifiable objects but quickly became more abstract and dynamic with use of intense primary colors. Starting around 1967 Kusaka introduced the circle form which subsequently morphed into an egg shape.  This egg shape counterbalanced his straight lines and angular corners.
