Shinji Ohmaki - Echoes of Infinity
This event has ended.
This is the second of the new series of exhibitions that started in 2004, which aims to introduce promising new talents in the form of a solo exhibition. Shinji Ohmaki, born in 1971, has an established reputation for his dynamic installations.
In this exhibition, Ohmaki embarks with increased vigor on new artwork that surpasses the scale of “Echo” he did in 2002. The floor of the art gallery will be carpeted with felt cloth, onto which Ohmaki paints colorful flowers pouring various pigments. The technique is the same as with “Echo” but, whereas he allowed the spectators of “Echo” to step on the flower designs, leaving the outlines of the drawings to gradually fade away, the felt cloth and the pigments have been revised this time so that, after the pigments sink in, he will be able to draw fresh flowers on the felt again. During the exhibition period, workshops will be held (reservation needed) allowing participants to pour out the pigments, and the flowers will be brought back to life again and again. Also, at the small exhibition room in the back, the flower designs will be covered with an acrylic coat to keep them fresh and vibrant. While his former work “Echo” expressed the flow of irreversible time, this exhibition expresses life that is regenerated over and over again, a life that goes on forever.
