Kozue Oshima "Star Atlas"
This event has ended.
In this exhibition, Oshima focuses on the wide universe and nature expanding above our heads. Just like how people have been looking up to the sky since ancient times, connecting stars to create stories, Oshima’s paintings seem to depict the map of connections between nature and the artist herself, floating in the ether. She depicts landscapes that consist of the links between different natural shapes and times.
Like the butterfly flapping its wings as if they supported the entire universe, a small point of observation spreads to become the cosmos through Oshima’s inexhaustible curiosity and endless imagination. The resulting star atlas then opens up to suggest that the origin of all things is one, that all living creatures are fragments of the universe.
Oshima’s second solo show, one and a half years after her first, consists of 14 drawings and paintings, further deepening the universe of her work.
