Who says abstract art canít be fun?

Rich, expressive and joyous - enter the vibrant world of Toshiko Tochihara. Review by Michael Bird

July 2010 - From the Print Edition

2 Photos
With an imaginative use of colour, line and materials, the abstract works of Japanese artist Toshiko Tochihara bring a bright and spontaneous approach to an often dull and repetitive style.
On display at an exclusive atelier near Piata Charles de Gaulle in the northern centre of Bucharest, these intense works recall the vitality of Howard Hodgkin and touch on the naÔve brilliance of Jean Debuffet.
Tochihara paints and draws straight onto wooden slats and breaks apart pieces of wood, adding a black border, or a red appendage to a work, or cutting out a hole, knocking off a new edge or tearing out a section.
Splatters of red, claws of black and rivers of blue enter into a play of violence, as Tochihara both liberates and attacks the materials at hand with a passionate fervour.
