TABOO: Ukiyo-e and the Japanese TATTOO

TABOO: Ukiyo-e and the Japanese TATTOO View Works

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 art (Japanese tattoo art) across history and medium. This stunning exhibition includes both contemporary and traditional Japanese tattoo art.

 

The exhibition will not only retain ukiyo-e masterpieces and Daniel Kelly’s large-scale mixed media works, but also offer some fresh works on view. Ronin Gallery is thrilled to present a new collection of Horiyoshi III’s drawings, a second rotation of paintings by Horiyoshi III, as well as previously undisplayed photographs by Masato Sudo.


On View In The Gallery: 3/2015 - 5/2015
