This event has ended.
In his first solo exhibition at the gallery in about four years, Yu Yasuda will present new paintings with refinement achieved through deep reflections on the fleeting phenomena and moments.
Yasuda is known for fluid pictorial space characterized by unique touches and numerous layers of colors mingling each other. The everyday scenes and figurative landscape prominent in his earlier works have been gradually replaced by abstraction, leading to the establishment of a singular style of shimmering masses of color that nevertheless evokes unspecified landscapes. This pictorial world, which has been described as a mental or dream-like landscape, emerges from the dialogue between the contingency and necessity created by paints and the idiosyncratic sensibility of the artist, instead of being depictions of specific images. Especially in recent years, Yasuda is exploring the process where he starts his production from an exploration into the forms of colors and tones, working toward the moment of discovery where the picture becomes a piece.
