Opening Reception: “Kikuo Saito: Hatching Color”
September 10 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30
September 9 – December 18
Saito’s larger paintings emerged from his drawings, which he treated like scaled-down maps to future landscapes. Nature and its charting play a role in this grouping of works from the final years of the artist’s career, and though he only numbered the drawings, the titles he gave to the paintings are mischievously specific: “Agber” might be a city in Nigeria, or a corruption of the Catalan Agbar; “Cala Branca” mixes the Portuguese Branca with Cala Blanca in Menorca; while “Tilla” could be Tila, a name shared by locations in Chiapas, Mexico, Uttar Pradesh, India, and Nepal. As cartographies of the placeless or unplaceable, these works evoke “hachure” — the term of art for the cross-hatched lines that indicate gradient and orientation on antique relief maps. The more closely-spaced these parallel strokes, the steeper the terrain, and conversely, as the strokes come loose again, the topography flattens. But while mapmaking hatching is essentially black-and-white shading, Saito turns the technique into an exploration of color — a joyous discovery of the countless new colors that can “be hatched” from the crossing of lines.
Opening reception will be held on September 10 as part of KinoSaito’s One Year Anniversary Celebration
