This event has ended.
This exhibition by Yayoi Deki presents new three-dimensional optical illusions and works from her recent National Flag series, both created with the artist’s unique technique of finger-stamping.
Three-dimensional objects based on three-dimensional optical illusions are exhibited for the first time. These works, which appear different from objective reality when observed from a certain angle, are approximately 40 centimeters in size. Applied with Deki’s dazzling finger stamps, they lead the viewer to a new visual experience.
Also on view are new pieces from the National Flag series, in which each tableau is created by gradations of colors selected from a single national flag. These works of fresh and fluttering imagery carry faces in each of their finger stamps, reminding the viewer of the people who constitute a nation. A hammock with printed finger stamp patterns from the series is included. As expressed in the exhibition title “Traveling ♪,” Deki’s new artworks evoke feelings of expectation for places yet to be visited, wonders yet to be encountered, and people yet to be met.
