Jun Azumatei "Talk on Air"
This event has ended.
To mark Gallery Dojunkai's opening in February, a series of exhibitions of 3 young artists are being held. The first was of Tomoji Ogawa's relief works; the second was of Atsuhito Otake's installation work and this third exhibition is of Jun Azumatei's new paintings.
In recent years, he has used the sky as a motif. He takes digital photographs of the sky or clouds and prints them out, applies a layer of paint which soaks into the photograph, varnishes it and then polishes it with fine sandpaper. Through this technique, Azumatei creates works with a unique sensibility to them: in one glance one can see that they are simple and gentle, not faint but have both a gloss and sense of transparency to them.
For this exhibition "Talk on Air," he is presenting an elliptical installation work on the gallery floor.
