Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to present Mt. Fuji, Hiroshi Sugimoto’s pair of classically-inspired Japanese folding screens featuring the artist’s depiction of the sacred mountain at dawn. Printed on washi—a traditionally handmade paper prominent since antiquity in the fabrication of origami and ritual utensils of Shinto priests—the screen evokes the quiet power and presence of traditional Japanese ink paintings.

Presented in collaboration with Lisson Gallery.
