Review: Shinichi Maruyama at Bruce Silverstein

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

Maruyama, a Japanese photographer now based in New York, creates sensational abstract images of what is essentially Action painting in midair, frozen with the aid of advanced strobe-light technology.

His only materials are black ink and water, almost always seen in collision against stark white backgrounds. The results are calligraphic, erotic, and elegant, not unlike James Nares's big, liquid brushstroke paintings, but with echoes of Harold Edgerton and Adam Fuss as well. Maruyama shares the gallery with Aaron Siskind, and, like him, brings spontaneity and control into perfect balance.

From The New Yorker.
