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...

Maki’s earliest works were done in the late 1950s and remained rather unknown until the late 1960s. He first started producing prints using red ink in 1965 and this is probably the first example. It is also a Big Red. It is very abstract and it fills up the whole sheet. Maki wanted his prints to have balance. This has it: the red field is pierced by three blue squares: two on the left side of the orange meteor-like strokes, and one on the right side...

Work 73-56 L (fish). This is the second of Maki’s three huge prints that I have owned. This is Work 73-56 L (fish). Several aspects of this image are intriguing. My archive of Maki prints reveals that Maki produced over 100 different images in 1973. I have been able to account for many of them: 1 to 50 and 99 to 110. I had never known what went in the middle. Now I know at least one was work 73-56, the third huge print that Maki did. It is 3 x 6 feet...

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

From 1969 to 1974 Haku Maki produced about 15 Big Red prints and some Big Blue and Green. This one Poem 71 52- was done in 1971. It depicts the kanji for Power. This striking image slices through the black background from top to bottom in a two-stroke movement. In the classic Maki mode the core image is set off by a black sun at the left and a small blue moon under it; on the other side there is a yellow splash...

1971 was a big year for Haku Maki He did over 100 different images of Japanese prints. Some, like this one, were big prints this one is 30.5 Inches x 15.25 It is 68/108 this is the abstract kanji for Mu or Nothing and I entitled Nothing The kanji starts at the top then cascades down to the final four strokes at he bottom. From a distance it appears to me like the steps going from top to bottom of a building on a Chinese hill on the Yangzi...

Maki Poem Z a Heart by any other name Maki began to use this theme early in his artistic life the character was normally vertical summits horizontal but this is the only time it was at an angle from the center and seemingly lacking in one stroke Hence it is an unusual design and intellectually challenging. Its meaning is not immediately evident even to the literati My curator in Beijing figured it out when she was opening the package and tilted it a bit. The print is large and subtle...

In 1960 Maki did the image shown. It is called “symbol” In all the years of collecting Maki prints and images I have never seen this one again It is quite large but seems cluttered. ‘forty years later he did it as a print and a post card even as one friend has suggested he did the print before 1999 the date on the print. The seals are authentic not printed: and they are original Maki seals from well-used chops.
