Description

Azuma created screen prints on canvas that appear to be paintings at first glance. The ink is so thick that is gives the feel of collage. The Associated American Artists (the publishers) label regarding this work, states:

"Serigraphy on canvas is a relatively new development in the evolution of printmaking. Azuma worked for two years perfecting this technique and has used up to 18 screens in printing his serigraphs. New York Times art critic, John Canaday, has described one of Azuma's serigraphs as 'so beautiful a manipulation of shape, color and texture that it eliminates my lingering objections to serigraphy as a technique.'"
