Haku Maki

In the Abstract: Summer 2020
A Collection of Haku Maki Prints

Haku Maki (1924-2000) was a sosaku hanga artist whose abstract compositions were achieved by developing an unusual labor-intensive mixed media printing technique utilizing cement relief attached to carved woodblocks or cardboard with deep embossing printed on double-layered paper. This small collection of Maki prints were found in a portfolio in the Estate of Haruno Tsuruoka (1924-2017), the daughter-in-law of the artist Tokutaro 'Kakunen' Tsuruoka, whose paintings this gallery was honored to present in the sold-out March 2019 exhibition, Captive Artist: Watercolors by Kakunen Tsuruoka (1892-1977).
