  • About the artwork

    This is hand-printed lithography with hand-colouring. This means that each work within the limited edition
    is different and unique in itself.

    The currently 103-year old artist Toko Shinoda did this when she was 93 years old, with each stroke meticulously laid down with a different calligraphy brush. The red colour comes from cinnabar which was ground by hand. This is a small and beautiful dynamic work which uses the white space as much as the brush strokes themselves. This is abstract expressionism based on Japanese calligraphy, at its best.

Toko Shinoda

Born in: 1913


Toko Shinoda is widely recognised as one of Japan’s greatest painters of the twentieth century. She first came to prominence in the 1960’s and 1970’s when she was discovered by the influential art dealer Betty Parsons, alongside works of artists such as Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. Trained as a calligrapher, her preference is still for the grey and black sumi (Japanese ink) strokes of colours against a field of white space. She grinds her own ink in her house. There is great respect for spatial relationships in her sophisticated, deeply Japanese work. Shinoda moved into lithography in the 1960’s which meant that her work became more available overseas despite her return to Japan. Lithography lends itself to Shinoda’s style, as she can use her brushes directly on the plate or stone and can therefore be as spontaneous as in her paintings. Shinoda turned 103 years old this year, and still lives and works in Tokyo. She is represented in the permanent collections of many museums internationally, including The British Museum, London; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Modern Museum of Art, NY; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Singapore National Museum; Museum fuer Ostasiatische Kunst, Berlin ; and Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art, Haifa.
