Hiroshi Senju (b.1958, Japan)
Hiroshi Senju is one of Japan’s most celebrated contemporary artists, noted worldwide for his sublime waterfall and cliff images, often monumental in scale. Senju combines a minimalist visual language rooted in Abstract Expressionism with ancient painting techniques unique to Japan. In his most recent paintings, the New York-based artist uses fluorescent pigments to create waterfall images, a style he first explored in 2007. These paintings are black and white in daylight, yet under ultraviolet light they fluoresce an arresting electric blue. An ode to the ubiquitous city lights of our contemporary existence, Senju’s waterfalls hover between night and day as he successfully straddles the realms of industry and nature, the material and the ethereal.
