Small Treasures: Mezzotints by Hamanishi Katsunori / Etchings by Tanaka Ryohei

Hamanishi Katsunori has been creating ex libris prints since 1986. Unlike his larger mezzotints, these bookplate prints are usually commissioned by clients who come up with ideas that Mr. Hamanishi helps to visualize and materialize into petite gems of art. Displayed alongside Hamanishi’s bookplate prints will be Tanaka Ryohei’s etchings that capture the harmonious coexistence of human and nature, which he feared was quickly disappearing. From thatched-roof farmhouses and hillside hamlets to narrow mountain paths and stone pavers leading toward a shrine out of view, Mr. Tanaka’s etchings hark back to a simpler life in which one lives lightly and requires little. Human figures play almost no part in his works, but they are implied at every turn.
