Kasai’s delicate silk screens have always had nature and light as a theme, wih seasonal intonations. Over the last ten years he has concentrated on the theme of water, usually seen from within, which started with a series of prints entitled “La Musique de la Mer”. Kasai’s mastery lies in the “bokashi” technique where colour changes gradually from dark to light without any discernable breaks and subtly depicts the penetration of light.
