Kei Imazu "Flash"
This event has ended.
Kei Imazu (b.1980), a VOCA exhibition prize winner, is known for her semi-abstract painting style that expresses a characteristic limpid world created by combining motifs from various landscapes and human figures.
Imazu randomly collects photographs from the Internet and magazines to construct paintings by combining those unrelated images in different ways. During this process, she looks for the shifting of values and intends to reveal the contradictions in this world. A painting that at first glance appears to be a gorgeous city view is in fact the site of a garbage dump; and an illuminated night view, when looked at closely, actually turns out to be a scene from after a flood. With beautiful colors, Imazu depicts the trivial contradictions hidden in daily life that we unconsciously accept.
