Conversation with Ruskin

 A Commemoration Book for Celebrating the Bicentenary of John Ruskin's Birth

"Painted, sculpted or photographed in his lifetime and since by many artists, none I know of has approached the challenge of portraying Ruskin quite like Hideyuki. In a single image he manages to bring forth Ruskin’s power, intensity, suffering and sensitivity with extraordinary clarity. Nor is Ruskin an object of contemplation. This is the face of a soul that urgently wishes to communicate with us. He inhabits the room and reaches out to us."

- Howard Hull, Director of The Brantwood Trust (excerpts from Preface)

2019 is the 200th anniversary of John Ruskin’s birth. For celebrating this important milestone, I published this commemoration book for my dedicated art project "Conversation with Ruskin" supported by Arts Council England. The book shows an in-depth story about the concept of this project with four sections: Portrait, Nature, Referentiality, and Life-Scape, along with my art practice with rich illustrations. The specifications are as follows:
