This event has ended.
Using still-life painting in art history as the subject matter, Shu Ikeda examines the relationship between object (physical matter) and image (image data) with a critical eye. Ikeda has been showcasing works that oscillate between painting and photography using nature and urban landscapes as motifs, creating unique shapes and negative spaces by cutting out the photographs and using the cut-out elements to design collages. His new works demonstrate how his creations continue to evolve; arbitrary elements have been curtailed while compositional ideas, such as utilizing the back side of a photograph and implementing inversions and contrast, have been incorporated.
