Dawn

by Yoshida, Tsukasa (b. 1949)

Abstract

9.5 x 14.75 inches. Woodblock print of five birds standing in water with another bird flying overhead with leaves falling and the sun rising in the forest background. Son of Toshi Yoshida and third generation of Yoshida family artists. First light shining on the tops of trees, the fog, the falling leaves, and on the bird flying, but not on the birds walking on the shore which seem to lack full reality. Again, Tsukasa seems to point to a deeper level of meaning than the ordinary visual level. Perhaps this print suggests that the viewer needs an awakening that must come to him or her, surrounded as we all are in dark shadows. Tsukasa is a meticulous artist who carves and prints his own blocks. He is the son of Toshi Yoshida and is now the head of the Yoshida Studio in Tokyo where he teaches students.
