Yuta Hayakawa + Sachiko Muraoka "from/to 5"
This event has ended.
Opening Thursday, July 16, Wako Works of Art is very pleased to present its fifth installment of the summer group exhibition project from/to. This year's show will include works by two artists, Yuta Hayakawa and Sachiko Muraoka.
Through his installations, Hayakawa seeks to take simple physical phenomena, such as gravity and water surface tension, and to represent such subtle perceptions and signs of presence as a form of art. This delicate and highly deliberated mimesis gives rise to a new sense of wonder in the natural processes.
Muraoka's oil paintings are composed of a vibrant array of fragments dispersed on a black painted surface. The lightweight shapes seem to form constellations and at the same time appear to be insignificant decorative elements. The jewel-like forms, devoid of size relativity, seemingly float and dispel the composition, making the audience aware of the larger image that spreads beyond what is visible to their eyes.
