When Tadaaki Kuwayama arrived in America in 1958, Abstract Expressionism, an energetic and gestural style of painting, dominated the art scene and he found himself rebelling against its aesthetic. Kuwayama’s sleek, geometric paintings positioned him within the minimalist wave of the 1960s. His distinctive style featured canvases with vivid fields of acrylic paint divided by thin strips of aluminum. “When I started my practice,” he said in a recent interview, “I felt the age of painting was over, and I wanted to make things that had no trace of painterliness in them, things that existed in a different dimension.”
