With their subtle gradations of shadow and light washing across the canvas to create landscapes of grand scale and detailed minutiae, Japanese painter Minol Araki’s work invites not only attention but also contemplation. This first complete retrospective of his work features five multi-panel paintings, created in the 1980s and early ’90s, that each stretch more than 70 feet in length. Araki was best known as an industrial designer, but was also renowned as an amateur ink painter who was active in Tokyo, Taipei, Hong Kong, and New York. Integrated into his luxurious works are dragons, snow monkeys, mountain streams, and forests.
