Yoshinobu Nakagawa "Connotation"
This event has ended.
Born in Osaka in 1964, Yoshinobu Nakagawa now resides in Shiga Prefecture. Ever since his first solo show in 1987, the year he graduated from Osaka University of Art, Nakagawa's motifs have consistently been plants, or the relationship between plants (nature) and human beings (farmer), or agriculture and cultivation, all of which are fundamental to us. His artisanship, which freely controls every kind of material, and the poetic emotions that spring from the naive form of his work, has attracted many people. This is his fourth show at taguchi fine art, ltd.
The relationship between "surface" which can be caught by our gaze and the "interior structure" which we cannot see, is the essential issue in sculpture. Nakagawa has flung himself into this issue from the beginning of his career. Several swelled relief works made of reclaimed paper and cowhide that serve as clues in his consideration are on view.
