About the art

74 page full-color exhibition catalogue, including 96 illustrations

Shaped by centuries of controversy, the Japanese tattoo embodies the forbidden and the dissonant.  Simultaneously representing both belonging and non-conformity, they are complicated cultural symbols. The Ronin Gallery's exhibition Taboo: Ukiyo-e and the Japanese Tattoo explores the verboten world of irezumi (japanese tattoo) across history and medium.  The works of ukiyo-e masters Kuniyoshi, Yoshitoshi, Kunisada and Kunichika celebrate the world of tattoo during the Edo and Meiji periods, while the original paintings and drawings of the acclaimed master of tebori and tattoo art, Horiyoshi III, offers a current interpretation of the centiuries-old tradition. The contemporary art photography of Masato Sudo continues the conversation, while the mixed-media work of American artist Daniel Kelly speaks to the universally inspirational power of the Japanese tattoo.
