Tsuchi: Earthy Materials in Contemporary Japanese Art
An examination of Japanese contemporary art through the lens of ecocriticism and environmental history
Bert Winther-Tamaki explores how Japanese artists have continually sought a passionate and redemptive engagement with earth. By focusing on the role of tsuchi (earthy materials such as soil and clay) as a convergence point for a wide range of creative practices, this book offers a critical reassessment of contemporary art in Japan and its intrinsic relationship to the environment.
