Large size limited edition original mezzotint print “SAFARI LAND - EMPTY HEARTS” by Atsuo Sakazume (born 1941) depicting two figures of gorillas consisting of jigsaw puzzle pieces, one of them starting to disintegrate, the other one almost gone as a recognizable entity. Printed in 1983, signed by the artist in pencil, titled in Japanese and numbered 10 from of the tiny edition of 20. Superb crisp print (both print and paper are perfectly rectangular, all the irregularities to the borders are from positioning during photography), clever and troubling thought provoking image. Never had been mounted, minor creases to corners, the print itself is in perfect condition. Prints by the artist can be found in the collections of the British Museum, Kyoto Museum and Osaka Contemporary Art Center. Image size 19×27 inches (49×69cm), paper size 23×30.75 inches (58×79).
