Tajima In Relief: A Retrospective of the Artist's Relief Prints

Sept. 24 – Dec. 11, 2021

This exhibition is the first major retrospective of relief prints by Tajima Hiroyuki (1911-1997), a Japanese artist internationally renowned for his use of layered and luminous color and his complex and creative printmaking techniques. Featuring more than 60 prints made over the course of his career, it examines Tajima’s recurring themes and his approach to abstraction. Tajima exemplifies the inventive incorporation of international trends that characterizes post-WWII Japanese printmaking.

TAJIMA IN RELIEF is organized by the Art Museum, University of Saint Joseph and is supported in part by an anonymous foundation; Benjamin Ortiz and Victor Torchia, Jr.; Miyoshi America, Inc.; the Us & Japan Society of Connecticut (UJSC); and the Karen L. Chase ’97 Fund.
