Fisherman’s Dream

by Sawai, Noboru (b. 1931)

Abstract

Etching, dry point, woodblock print, 30 x 21 3/8 inches, by Noboru Sawai. Shows a large plate of fish on the table, with four small plates above on the wall. It celebrates a catch of fish caught by fishermen living on an island in the Inland Sea of Japan, where Noboru was born. The plump fish have been expertly and beautifully drawn, using a combination of printmaking techniques. The large plate has a border of naked figures echoing Picasso; the small plates have images taken from Japanese and Western sexual art. The emotional clash of Asian and Western cultures in a Japanese person is Noboru's perennial theme. Noboru studied with Toshi Yoshida and presently has a studio in Vancouver, Canada.
