Catalogue Details

The internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Boshu Nagase visited Hobart in 2006 to work on a folio of prints of Antarctic fish. These fish prints will illustrate a large-format book on Antarctic fish edited by Harvey Marchant of the Australian Antarctic Division and Mitsuo Fukuchi of the Japanese National Institute for Polar Research.
Boshu Nagase has over 40 years' experience of a printing art known as gyotaku (gyo = fish; taku = print, impression, rubbing). Gyotaku is a distinctively Japanese way of illustrating nature. In its simplest form (the direct method) paint is applied to a fish, shell or plant and a print is taken from the object onto paper or cloth. The indirect method of gyotaku requires much greater skill. Fine paper, not much thicker than tissue paper, is moistened and pressed to the surface of a fish or plant. Coloured inks are then applied to the paper in layers to colour the imprint of the organism. The result is an anatomically exact copy of the organism and coloured either as it is in nature or as the artist chooses.
Boshu Nagase is perhaps the principal living exponent of the indirect method. He has produced folios of gyotaku of the fish of the Great Barrier Reef, the Mediterranean Sea and the marine and freshwater fish of Japan. He has had many exhibitions and his work is on permanent display at the Australian Institute of Marine Science near Townsville, Queensland, the Monaco Museum of Oceanography, the University of Maine and in various Japanese galleries.
