Born in a humble dwelling at the bottom of a valley, the print artist Imamura Yoshio still lives in the Japanese Alps of Nagano Prefecture. Memories of wandering amidst fields, woods, streams and mountains and of gazing at the stars at night inspire him. Moved by the evocative beauty of wild flowers and vines, dilapidated village huts and heavenly constellations, Imamura records his insights into the transience of life as well as his reverence for the enduring spirit that merges both history and evolution. Imamuras haunting works, which combine an exploration of subtle textures, colors, patterns and shifts in nature as well as geometric shapes and mysterious signs, are created using mixed media (etching, engraving, woodblock, aquatint, chine collé, collagraph, gold, silver, copper and black leaf).
