Generally speaking, Minamikawa’s radical restraint is not so much a byproduct of the sentiment of there being nothing really left to give, or paint, but rather that of a paring down, of locating the essential and conveying, almost offhandedly, a maximum with a minimum.

Characterized by an emphasis on the potential for painting to function both as an active void as well as a space for and of play, Minamikawa’s practice serves as a particularly Japanese response to the current state of painting.
