Yarakusho

by Sawai, Noboru (b. 1931)

Abstract

Blue brown red, nude woman in right corner. . A subway train, underground, is arriving at the station Yarakusho, having a large advertisement showing a nude woman. Black, gray, blue, brown, and red. The implication is sexual. The overtness is a challenge to both Japanese and Western sensitivity. Noboru made this print while being a student at the Yoshida Studio in Tokyo. Back again in Japan, after a number of years in the United States, this seems to be evidence of the artist's internal pain resulting from changing from Japanese culture to Western culture and back again to Japanese culture. This clash of cultures became the main subject matter in Noboru's career.
