Sculpting than quite work his canvases, he used supplies akin to rubber, metallic grommets, stitching supplies (typically staples), and the stretcher body to take summary portray ahead. Splitting the final many years of his life between the U.S. and his native Japan, Furukawa produced multifaceted work which on the similar time signifies an eye fixed to Minimalism in addition to a deep sensitivity to materials and line that recollects Japanese Imperial structure. Maus Modern will current works from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, displaying a shift within the artist’s follow.
