Tamari-e

KITAMURA'S JOURNEY

By Eudald Camps Photo Andrea Ferrés

Nearly four decades ago, Hiroshi Kitamura (Hokkaido, 1955) left his world behind to become familiar with the western  viewpoint. The painting styles of the great masters, such as Goya, Picasso, and Miró, as well as Gaudí’s architecture, ended up bringing him to a Mediterranean universe that he continues to explore from the countryside around Camallera. The synthesis of these worlds, on the face of it, couldn’t be stranger: Kitamura’s Tamari-e, based on the natural flow of pictorial elements, has little to do with the Iberian tradition, often conditioned by the drama of its own history. Yet, we should insist that the contradictions are merely apparent.

THEMED REPORTAGE

VERMOUTH, NOW AND ALWAYS

The classic vermouth is now the aperitif par of excellence. A tradition that has made a powerful come-back as the multi-dimentional phenomena of ‘the aperitif’... musical, poetical and literary — vermouth culture is reborn! Fancy a vermouth? With olives, ice, soda, in a cocktail… and, of course, along with some tapas, cockles, ‘patatas bravas’… In this realm, the scope of our imagination has no end!
