Sadami Azuma was a member of the Gutai Art Association, established by Jiro Yoshihara, since its inception in 1954, and changed the flow of Japanese modern painting.
It is impossible to fit Sadami Azuma’s works into the modern
Western aesthetic frameworks of concreteness or abstractness.
There has never been an artist who paints pictures like this or who
tries to put these kinds of “feelings” into a picture.
Simply put, the paintings are difficult to understand.
Nevertheless, the works invoke feelings in viewers, and even now,
after the artist’s death, they continue to exude a sense of power and presence.
