Noriyuki Konshi "One as All"
This event has ended.
Figures portrayed by Toshiyuki Konishi (born 1980 in Hiroshima) have red eyes, nose and mouth, with white hair. Redacting all information needed to determine a particular individual and using unique wavering brushstrokes, these portraits persistently provoke the viewers' imagination.
For his much-awaited second solo show, the chosen keyword is "One as All," a phrase coined by Konishi to represent his current state of mind and derived from the Eastern philosophy of "One in all, all in one".
Through this keyword, one can discern the artist's commitment to directly take on the academic painting method of "portraits" while striving to reach a universal expression that houses various elements such as color, shape, quality, and structure in each stroke of the brush. In this exhibition, a portrait of a figure holding a brush that seemingly symbolizes the artist himself will be displayed, along with about 10 new pieces.
