Yuko Nasaka’s artworks presented at the Nika Exhibition and Ashiya City Art Exhibition caught the eye of Jiro Yoshihara, leader of the Gutai Art Association, in 1962. As a result, Nasaka joined the Gutai group the following year. The motif of a circle was ingrained in the artist’s memory because her family’s business involved producing circular meters and dials for ship’s control panels. The circle became a lifelong trademark of her artistic career. Her first solo exhibition at the Gutai Pinacotheca (1964), which consisted of a space filled entirely with concentric circles, drew attention from visitors and prominent international figures, such as Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, and Merce Cunningham. After taking a sabbatical from her career, the artist returned to art with a series of large pieces with circles. Nasaka’s boundless circles and her artistic perspective continued to fascinate the art world, and her works grew popular in Europe.
