A Japanese artist classically trained in Yamato-e (traditional Japanese painting), Akira Yamaguchi's large format watercolors demonstrate a refinement on par with the old masters. These paintings, however, take another look. They are of an historic color, bristling with the tools, locations, things and situations of contemporary Japan. Skyscrapers seem clearly the cousins of the Heiji Castles they replaced. Rocket launchers, airplanes. Truly astounding.
