Regarding the transposition from a three-dimensional presentation to a two-dimensional one with the substance unaltered as a change of perspective on the side of the viewer, this exhibition is another attempt to explore the meaning engendered by a move from carving to printing. It brings together a total of 11 printed works that were made at Kido Press by three artists of different generations: Katsura Funakoshi (born in 1951), who engaged in intensive production of copperplate intaglio prints at Kido Press twice, in 2013 and 2017; Atsuhiko Misawa (born in 1961), who produced his first lithographs ever in 2014; and Taku Obata (born in 1980), whose lithographs were made in 2016.                             What can we discern in the migration of "Sphinx," "Animals," and "B-Boy" images between sculptures and flats? We strongly urge visitors to examine the relationship between carvings and prints by seeing the different approaches to printing taken by the three artists usually making wooden sculptures, and are sure you will enjoy experiencing the world views manifested in works of printed art made by sculptors.
