Miki Mochizuka “SLS”
This event has ended.
Mochizuka's paintings are produced by layering images or memories which he has not seen.
The layering of paint on canvas serves as an aid to collage; what is presented is a landscape of an everyday real; experience rather than a vision existing only in his brain.
Following this seemingly simply process caused Mochizuka to add experimental elements to his painting. Familiar characters from nature- animals and twigs - are created and added to Mochizuka's painted and sculptural compositions, highlighting as well the place of artifice in his attempt to move beyond simple representation. Distinct in style and grounded through Mochizuka's use of repetition, the recent work presents a contemporary approach to the classic theme of light. Mochizuka's work for the exhibition "Artist Studio" consists of new paintings of light and the shape of interstitial space, the gap between grass or twigs. In his upcoming solo show with MISAKO & ROSEN, Mochizuka will exhibit more developed paintings from this series.
Sedimented layers of time and memory are unearthed from Mochizuka's experience of past time and place. Mochizuka said, “The landscapes that I express through painting is the same as the ones I see with my eyes closed.”. Mochizuka will exhibit a new series of paintings and present the Tokyo debut of his most recent bronze sculptures.
