A crucial figure from Gutai’s younger generation, Onoda Minoru (1937–2008) joined the radical post-war artists’ group in 1965. His prolific painting career was marked by new forms, styles, and hierarchy expressed through lines and circles. Minoru is known for at first creating undulating, dotted shapes that seem to grow organically, then progressing to infinite circles and later also monochrome paintings, where the edge reappears. This catalogue to a large exhibition of Minoru’s work at the Himeji City Museum of Art in Japan shows in great detail how he became a master of the art of bringing order to chaos.The book’s chapters and titles correspond with the content of the exhibition.
