This event has ended.
Yasuko Iba (1967-), fascinated by the world manifesting between her eye and her motif, captures the fleeting scene by depicting the motif’s alluring textures under the play of light. While her style of painting based on photographs never changes, she has in recent years gradually taken a distance from her accustomed motifs. Her interest in space and landscape has grown, and by broadening her view to the scene’s surrounding depths, she is entering a new stage of development. This time, along with paintings created from photos taken at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Iba will display print works and also works of video art, a new field of endeavor for her. The exhibition—her first solo show at a museum in ten years—follows her 2009 exhibition, “Yasuko Iba—Whereness of Brilliance” (The Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura & Hayama). While primarily focused on recent and new works, the exhibition will also display earlier paintings to highlight Yasuko Iba’s changes of these ten years as well as the unchanging core of her interest.
