Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;Japanese bamboo sculptures and baskets are celebrated with stunning detail in this art collection.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Bamboo is an exacting medium for the artist. A true artist of bamboo "bears full responsibility for every step of the creative process," according to Fujinuma Noboru, one of the artists represented in this publication. "Without splitting the bamboo and working through each of the various steps oneself," he explains, "one cannot get the 'feel' of each individual bamboo culm and know for what kind of piece it will be best suited. And there are no shortcuts in bambooand#8212;there is no way to mechanize the process."andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;In this book accompanying the exhibition andlt;iandgt;Masters of Bamboo: Japanese Baskets and Sculpture from the Cotsen Collectionandlt;/iandgt;, exhibition curator Melissa Rinne, in consultation with bamboo specialist Koichiro Okada, provides an overview of this intriguing art form. She also traces the network of master-disciple influences that constitute the major lineages-or lines of artistic transmission-in bamboo art, from nineteenth-century artists through those active today. These lineages have never before been described in a systematic way, and they provide a means of comprehending Japanese bamboo work from a global perspective.
