Topaz Moon Chiura Obata's Art of the Internment Summary ☆ 102 Kimi Kodani Hill ë 2 Read Nt camps during World War II Obata s work from this period gives us a view into the camps that is at once honest in. I am working on a piece of literary fiction that will treat in part the internment of Japanese and Japanese Americans during World War II I am in the research phase on so many levels there is so much to know about and understand But one thing I do know at least one of my characters will be an artist I expect I ll base that character at least partly on Chiura ObataI first encountered Chiura Obata in a book called Obata s Yosemite comprising paintings drawings and letters from a trip he made to the High Sierra in 1927 I later learned that he was imprisoned at Tanforan near San Francisco and Topaz Utah during the warObata came to the US in 1903 at the age of eighteen His father was an artist and Chiura followed in his footsteps training in the art of sumi e starting at age seven By the 1920s he was becoming established as an artist painting murals and designs for leading department stores and designing sets for the San Francisco Opera In 1928 he had his first solo show and in 1932 he began teaching at the University of California Berkeley where he remained until 1954mdash absent the gap caused by his internment and subseuent relocation to the Midwest In 1954 when Japanese were finally allowed to become US citizens he and his wife Haruko did so He died in 1975 having spent fifteen years after retirement leading culturalartistic tours to Japan his second careerThis book written and researched by his granddaughter brings together many photographs letters and especially drawings and paintings that pertain to the war years when the Obatas spent five months at the Tanforan Assembly Center and then eight months at Topaz Relocation Center He never stopped drawing so we have images of the camps of the train rides in between of assembly areas of the hospital you name it he got it down on paper Notably in both camps he started and led art schools with a professional faculty teaching hundreds of students from children to seventy year olds in all manner of classes figure painting still life mural painting and art appreciation interior and fashion design architectural drafting and cartooning and many techniues including sumi e Haruko taught ikebanaThe book is rich with details but even it s rich with humanity Obata was fifty seven when he had to leave everything behind fortunately he had good friends in the Berkeley community who took care of his most prized possessions something most internees did not have but his attitude was consistently positive He found solace and meaning in his art As he put it in 1946 In any circumstance anywhere and anytime take up your brush and express what you face and what you think without wasting time and energy complaining and crying out I hold that statement as my aim and as I have told my friends and students the aim of artistsThroughout the text we are treated to line drawings and at the end of the book many of his color paintings watercolors on paper and silk mostly show us Obata s sensibility and the beauty of his vision in the context of one of the tragic periods of our nation s history
