Ends in 15 days

Born in 1979 in Hiroshima, Japan, Shu Ikeda produces artworks that traverse the gap between painting and photography by cutting out photographs to create unique shapes and voids. In his fourth solo show with Maki Fine Arts, Ikeda will showcase eight new works. His recent work reveals how his techniques have evolved to use collage in addition to cut-out techniques. By collecting the cut-outs taken from photographs and re-configuring them, he is able to create imaginary landscapes. In his new work “Mebius Loop,” parts of a photograph capturing a construction site in Toyosu, Tokyo are cut out, then imaginary structures are built on the upper section of the work, in effect visualizing the “scrap-and-build” development taking place in Tokyo on a daily basis.
