Tatsuo Kawaguchi1940-

The artist has been showing his works throughout the world since 1960s'. The theme of his work is "visible", "invisible", and their relationships. His work make us feel the materialistic dignity of an object or the time it contains, even if the "object" is sometimes invisible, or even if the invisible is a hollow space.
