"Core Pink" addresses us primarily in terms of proportion and colour. A band of deep pink seems to hover in front of two bands of brown. Shiraishi's works can be thought of as developments of the "hard-edge" strand of geometric abstraction, seen in the work of painters such as Barnett Newman and Ellsworth Kelly. There is a sharp division between the three colours, and although there is little sense of depth, Shiraishi plays with space by allowing the deep pink to seem to stand further forward. A sense of depth is also created by the textured surface of the work. Shiraishi was born in Tokyo and has lived in Vancouver and London.
