A lifetime commitment to the craft of printing has culminated in Kenro Izu recently developing an exciting and unique process that has never before been used. Cyanotype-blue abstract forms emerge from deep platinum shadows immersing the viewer in a multi-layered viewing experience. The result is a perfect synthesis of subject and medium. The tactile surface qualities and rich tonalities of Izu's prints reflect a mood and aesthetic that has affinities with the early Pictorialist photographers as well as with his Japanese heritage. Izu's tranquil compositions inspire a meditation on the mystery of form, time and space.
