Toshio Shibata
at Gallery Luisotti, Santa Monica, California
by Jody Zellen

Toshio Shibata, “Takeda City, Oita Prefecture,” 2010, Fuji crystal archive print, 32 x 40”

Continuing through January 27, 2018

Toshio Shibata's color photographs in the exhibition “Japanscapes" focus on that country's built environment, emphasizing the graphic and abstract qualities that arise in the man-made structures built to control nature. Though well known for his black and white photographs, Shibata has recently turned to color and in Japanscapes he presents breathtaking images in a variety of sizes that celebrate form while simultaneously alluding to the dangers and irreversibility of the human presence in and on the environment. What is remarkable about Shibata's photographs is the precise framing and the clarity of the formal relationships — color, texture, shapes — he finds waiting to be discovered.
