Japanese artist Kazuo Shiraga (1924-2008) swinging from a rope and creating abstract paintings with his feet. Any perceived disadvantage of not using his hands to paint is debunked by the works bold energy and muscular, expressive physicality. Nice footwork. They’re a knockout.

Shiraga’s work is on view at Dominique Levy Gallery in New York until April 4, and at the Dallas Museum of Art from Feb. 8 through July 19.
