Antonio Saura, Shiraga ne peint pas avec les pieds, exh. cat.Kazuo Shiraga, Toulouse, 1993 In the wake of the Second World War, the revolution in painting – propelled by a move towards Abstract Expressionism by pioneers such as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning in the West – saw a similar development on the other side of the world. Exhibiting an intense dynamism,Sekito is a stunning example of Kazuo Shiraga's radical 'performance paintings'. A pivotal member of Japan's most remarkable avant-garde art collective – TheGutai Bijutsu Kyokai(Gutai Art Association) – Shiraga's technique epitomises the group quest for a radical new artistic expression. Gutaï itself arose from another movement called Zerokaï and founded by Shiraga in 1952 with the aim of creating an art free of all intentions and conventions. The conjunction ofgu(instrument) andtaï(body), Gutaï praised the reconciliation between the body and matter, between the energy spent by the artist's action and the medium of its expression. By placing his works flat on the floor and using his feet to spread thick layers of paint across the surface of the canvas in energetic gestural moves, Shiraga wanted to "paint as though rushing around on a battlefield, exerting" himself "to collapse from exhaustion" (Kazuo Shiraga quoted in: Exh. Cat., New York, Mc Caffrey Fine Art, Kazuo Shiraga, 2009, p. 59). The uninhibited action allowed the artist to fully immerse himself in the work, merging body with matter in a fluid, explosive, visceral synthesis. Executed in 1979,Sekito,The Red Devil (or Red Hare)belongs to the corpus of works by Shiraga, known as theAncient Chinese History Series. Sekito refers toan extaordinary horse owned by the warlordLü Bu, who lived during the lateEastern Han dynastyof China. Sekito mentioned inLü Bu's biographies in the historical textsRecords of the Three Kingdoms was described as a super powerful animal "capable of travelling 1,000liin a day. [...] crosses rivers and climbs mountains as though it is moving on flat land, [...]". After Lü Bu's downfall and death at theBattle of Xiapi,Sekitocomes into the possession ofGuan Yuthe general who played a significant role in the events that led to the end of the dynasty and the establishment of the state of Shu Han in the Three Kingdoms period. It comes as no surprise that this story was a perfect inspiration for Shiraga. The compositional complexity ofSekito continually fluctuates between rhythmic calligraphic sways and the disorganised chaos of unrestrained action painting. Sekitoradiates with chromatic potency as sumptuous strokes intersect in a mesmerising dance. With its frenzied poetic chaos and vibrancy, the painting is an arresting vestige of the innovation that most defines Shiraga's unique visual language and artistic philosophy. Like Yves Klein, who utilised naked women as 'human paintbrushes' in hisAnthropométriesof the late 1950s and 1960s, and Jackson Pollock, who showed a distinct interest in the expressive idiom of the radical Japanese artists, Shiraga developped such a visceral gestural language that his radical paintings stand as exceptional milestones in the history of twentieth-century art.
