This event has ended.
Naoya Inose’s work explores the tension between the natural world and its grasping appropriation by human influence. He uses oil painting techniques to create both meticulously realistic landscapes and abstract oil paintings on canvas. Influenced by landscape paintings of Romanticism and color composition paintings by Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman, he represents the dynamism of nature on canvases. The exhibition theme “Blue” is manifold in its meaning. We may dive into the blue with our sight, as the color alludes to atmospheres, skies or seas we can fly into, as well as its gloomy melancholic feeling. The exhibition depicts a narrative of the artist’s development in his style, evolving from super realistic paintings to current painterly paintings.
