About The Artist:

Gershon was a Yale-educated pathologist who spent time working in Japan on projects related to hepatitis B and became friends with Japanese artists in Domoto's circle including Yoko Ono and Noriko Prince.

Hisao Domoto comes from a well-known Japanese family of traditional painters. His artwork references two distinctly different Japanese aesthetics. On one hand, he is influenced by the Minimalist aesthetic popularized by the 19th century Japanese artist Gibbon Sengai. On the other, he employs a rich range of colors and complex geometric forms from the Feudal tradition. His acrylic paintings employ bold colors in a highly finished, complex and fresh manner, uniting these two, traditionally segregated Japanese aesthetic traditions.

Works by Domoto are included in many international collections including the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
