This event has ended.
Sato is known for creating drawings with an excessive, and seemingly obsessive use of pencil lines. His imagery looks as if it proliferates endlessly, and represents the artist’s earnest attempt to capture the world and himself through the act of drawing. What does it mean to understand others? Can we survive without being connected with others? Driven by these questions, Sato depicts love, sex, life, and hope with overflowing energy. On the other hand, he also expresses a sense of unease and deep darkness, solitude, fragility, and fear. All of these fill his canvas with harmony or with dissonance. This exhibition features his drawings and collages as well as paintings that he has started creating in recent years.
