This event has ended.

Artist Daisuke Ohba’s (b. 1981) third solo exhibition with this gallery references various approaches in the history of contemporary art, and marks a new challenge in reconciling ideas such as chance and regularity that he has been continually exploring.

As image and color continuously change within the conditions of ambient light and viewers’ movements, Ohba’s iridescent pearl paintings evoke an illusion that emerges and fades through the transience of time. With the cast of the viewer’s gaze, the painting constructs a quiet dialogue by developing a relationship in pictorial space as the image, crystallized within the mind of the painter, is activated and brought to life. While these responsive effects - inducing light movement and flickering in the viewer’s eye - have been intended through methodological experiments according to optical laws, the painting also embraces the notion of chance during the process of painting, thus producing an unexpected deformation of patterns.
