In 1981 Haku Maki suddenly produced a modest series o prints with a vinyl (old leather) like background. I have already written abut several of these in my research Note 8. Now I present another : a striking orange red persimmon with leaves tipped with a special Japanese lacquer and the background in vinyl. This is 81-31 and it is 175/190

Poem 70-73 Taiwa (Level or peace), 31/106, 17.5”x 24.5”. Haku Maki produced this big green print in 1970. His Big prints—large for him—appeared mainly in the period 1968-75. This print, the only horizontal one of all his Big prints, depicts the kanji for Level, Peace and the like. I believe it has other meanings. When I first saw this image many years ago but had not seen the bottom margin clearly, I thought it was a stylized rendition of Woman, a very frequent Maki subject. ...

Haku Maki was a prolific artist of modern Japanese prints in the second half of the 20th century. Many of his prints are known but quite a few remain unseen, even in the Internet age. The Emanation series was large: Maki probably produced more than 100 different prints in the series. At this advanced age, I have only seen about 30 of the Emanation prints—and have only managed to acquire a few. In Emanation 65B Maki has produced a very colorful print: the red core is set off by the orange stri...

Work 73-6 Bizarre Maki. this print was done in early 1973 It is one of the ugliest Maki prints I have ever seen. In this period Maki did some of his largest prints and some also with seemingly weird qualities. But these big ones – easily seen to be a variation of Nothing or Mu—are not riddles We know what they are because Maki told what he meant. Here: he left no such advice. Several friends have also said they do not know what Maki meant So we leave it at that for now. 10.75 x 10.5 inch pap...

In late 2011 I received several maki prints of 1981 these all have leather like surfaces: I thought this was a phenomenon of that year. I was wrong Maki actually used this surface in 1971 for a few Persimmon prints and then not again until 1981 I show here copies from my Maki archives. When we filed those images a long time ago, they were not clear enough, are still not. But I think they are with that leather like finish. Any views Most gratefully received. My images are from catalogu...

In 1968 Haku Maki completed his Animal Song series. It was 12 different prints, one for each year of the Chinese/Japanese zodiac. Each print had the title Animal Song and the kanji for the animal, which was not translated. This print, Animal Song [dragon], 14/50, is a beautiful Maki red. The dragon of the image is a very traditional Chinese character for dragon. In this print Maki used the theme dragon for the first time. This dashing abstract kanji seems to almost swirl out of the paper. Wh...

it is `` U `` no meaning. Just one of ``Hiragana``, It is like two brush strokes piercing the space, leaving a trace of itself before coming to the bottom of the paper. It has but one splash across the top and a red tear along the side and then: Whoosh it goes as in the red image at the bottom there is one sun at the outer edge of the stroke and two moons inside the curving stroke Not so simple after all. restored there are 3 small suns or moon here also

This work is now 5 years old I set forth the main aspects of the works of Haku Maki the main themes of his work the main aspects of his style and the broad range of his works. I think I did not realize in 2007 the range and versatility of his work, its drama and subtlety. Since this book was published I have written 9 research notes and many descriptions of key works.

I call this set of images The Zodiac but Maki formally called this Animal Song + the animal name in kanji. The actual prints here are Animal Song. Red Lantern Gallery in Kyoto distributed them. 1968. In 1968 Haku Maki was commissioned by Red Lantern Gallery in Kyoto to produce the 12 animals of he Zodiac in a series entitled Animal Song. My research note 3 described this set briefly. This is an enhanced version. Maki did only 50 copies of each print; that was a normal run for Maki in that ...
