Senju Shunga After the Kinbaku Photography of Nobuyoshi Araki

Shiragiku (white chrysanthemum – Fig.1)‘ is Senju Shunga’s most recent painting (his second kinbaku piece this year). A strong influence was the excellent photographic work of Nobuyoshi Araki (Fig.8, 9 and 10) whose models have a similar expression of defiance and power.

Wordless Poetry

Senju gets his inspiration from several kinbaku accounts on Instagram he follows. For him, it’s about the anesthetics and aesthetics rather than the passion of the participants. On his motivations he comments,’I have not yet defined what it is that inspire me in these images of bodies and ropes, but it there seems to be some sort of pattern. I am often in a poetic state of mind when creating my art, and perhaps this is what I see… wordless poetry.’
