Last year, Yamada Masaaki’s first great Retrospective exhibition has been held at the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, then the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, which surely made Yamada’s presence felt in the art market worldwide. There would not be anyone else, but artist like Yamada who let us understand the answer of what abstract painting is. Yamada emphasize on “chain”, where work one by one is the process, and continue to draw the next one by one. After ”disassembly” of the drawing target of “Still Life” series, then toward “construction” at once, he developed into repeating surface and repeating line, stripes. Later, the “Work” series continued for 40 years, and Yamada find the possibility of his own representation by trial and error as a result, while changing into “Color” series that painting with monogram (monochromatic) evenly on the whole canvas by oil paint in his later life. Dark and brightness, color and texture in his representation are supposed to be made in the process of further evolution. From that you may feel the strong power of “life” of Yamada, who is called a cool and distant artist, overflowing from inside.
