David Hockney and Heihiro Fukuda. Meeting two colorists

Gallery CLUB in Tokyo presents the work of David Hockney and Heihiro Fukuda "Meeting two colorists". The exhibition tells about the similarities of the famous colorist artists of this century. The authors depicted the reality of nature as a bold composition of color fields, which turns their figurative paintings into almost abstract works. This shift of consciousness from object to color can change our worldview. The exhibition emphasizes the dialogue between Eastern and Western aesthetics, comparing drawings Hockney from the series "Suite Yosemite" with six masterpieces of Fukuda, including "Blue Flags".
