Hiroshi Tachibana “Emerge”
This event has ended.
These works by Hiroshi Tachibana, created during the artist’s first long stay in Japan in two decades, are a focused attempt to visualize the invisible and show the influences of time and place. They pick up on the unconscious within consciousness, conjuring memories and visual perceptions that do not normally come to the forefront of the mind. Tachibana’s layers of colors and forms resemble automatic paintings: they are created not through the conscious mind of the artist— rather, he becomes a tool that delivers these images. Tachibana carefully stores old palettes, paper towels, and drawings in his studio, which he traces and reconstructs on the canvas. His practice uncovers unconscious visual perceptions and layers of imagery, creating fascinating densities from superficialities. This exhibition, an opportunity to reconsider Tachibana’s identity, presents all new paintings made during his stay in Japan.
