Amano Kunihiro is a self-taught printmaker; like so many of his generation, his work shows the influence of the artist Munakata Shiko, also represented in this exhibition. His earliest prints used exposed wood grain to capture representational images; by the late 1950s, his style moved rapidly toward abstraction. Enclosure 33 is one of a large series of prints from the mid-1960s in which he explores the combinations of a variety of shapes, form, and textures.
