again, sorry for the late post!
For Shinichi Maruyama, photography is a resourceful medium rich in aesthetic, commercial, and social possibilities. For the past five years, in a group of astonishing images he calls the Kusho series, Maruyama has focused on the technical and characteristics of the photographic medium itself.
The Kusho series consists of twenty-three large-scale color photographs that represent the interplay of black ink and water, both in midair and on white surfaces. These images literally deconstruct the material elements of ink drawing and calligraphy, allowing us to see, in detail, the chemical and physical processes invisible to the naked eye.
