This event has ended.
This exhibition features an ongoing series of highly intricate and complex compositions entitled Impermanence. This body of work was conceived in 2012, as Ishikawa meditated on the ever-shifting appearance of the landscape outside her large studio windows. She began to alter the pictorial structure of paintings from previous decades, retouching or reworking compositions that had once seemed complete. No longer facing a blank canvas, she responds to the “given conditions” of the existing painted surface, adding new layers of lines and grids, some with sand mixed into the paint, and some incorporating the tentai pointillist technique. This retouching is not intended to damage, destroy, or deny the given conditions, but to generate a new pictorial meaning within the colors and painted forms on the surface.
