I first saw this print in a small pamphlet from white lotus gallery in Oregon, acquired the print in ways that Du Yuesheng would be proud of and it has rested here for over two years It is a small print but it packs a punch It shows a prancing dancing woman What do you think? the kanji in the center of the print is set off by a tear at the left and a sun at the right. 5.75” x 8.5”

Pekinese of old and Beijingers of today use cricket cages like this to hold a cricket on a walk in the park or on the way to a cricket fight., The cage is made of a gourd molded to this shape After being collected the gourd is fitted with a wooden top (here made of ebony wood ) The little cage is then fitted for a small sack for ease of carrying and to protect the critter from the cold . The top is made or carved tortoise shell – so it can breathe, of course.

This is a surprisingly good kanji It was done in 1972 slightly beyond Maki’s core period for such small kanji. It is the kanji for Mu or Nothing It is a very abstract character more so than most of Maki’s rendering of Nothing this image is sharp it is concise and it has drive. It has the Maki style and balance : a seal and the bottom margin. It looks sharp the seal at the right is balanced off by the splash at the left

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...

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...

Frame 8 is the same image but done with a yellow sun and purple moon. It is 33/50. This suggests many of the first 33 and then some were done this way ; then Maki did not use these colors. I do not own this print the paper has the same wavy condition that Huge Woman had before restoring; in frame 9 I show Huge Noting it is in he Portland Museum of art. Last image is Work 73-54 (Fish) 54/54 Moon is concave sun is convex

The bottom margin states this is 39/777 but did Maki really do that many and if so where are they? This is a late in life Maki print. Where did this idea come from? a sunflower! I know van Gogh did quite a few famous paintings depicting many sunflowers, all realistic paintings, the Japanese printmaker Tadashi Nakayama. did many different takes on Sunflowers these were realistic depictions. Nakayama did fewer...
