5.0 out of 5 stars you can't tell a book looking at the cover., 17 May 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ascending Chaos: The Art of Masami Teraoka (Hardcover)
on the one hand we have a kind of grotesque renaissance styled in oils...violent and lewd...not very flattering to women and not to my taste...however on the other hand we have classic meiji woodblock images done in watercolour and they are boss...these are earlier...samurai and geisha with watches...scuba gear...video cameras and reflections of a contemporary american society...one of my favorites is a tattooed fishergirl...beautiful...there is a very big difference between between the two styles and suggest some kind of epiphany...this will soon have great importance to american arts bridging a gap between traditional japanese art and modern...wacky and fascinating...a substantial book...cheap at present...don't linger.
