Exhibition “Both or Nothing”
This event has ended.
Recently there has been a lot of talk about work that has three-dimensional elements in spite of being a two-dimensional work or remains within the concept of a two-dimensional painting even though it is a three-dimensional object. This exhibition selects 15 works under the theme of “Both or Nothing” from five artists.
Tamiko Washizu (b. 1945) draws on plain notebooks using the technique of assemblage. Mayumi Terada (b. 1958) first created a palm-sized miniature as a photograph to produce a space where imagination and reality were mixed. Yusuke Suga (b. 1984) produces his works using various materials and 3DCG video works. These 2-D/3-D works combine visual dynamism and sophisticated sculpture techniques. The paintings of Mugi Nakajima (b. 1978) have a very thick canvas frame, reminiscent of a large box. The artist pays attention to the materiality, fluidity, and the high saturation of acrylic paint, expressing the light and space that dwells there despite the fact that it is a flat painting. Satoshi Uchiyama (b. 1978) explores the concept of “What is Painting?” in all the works he creates. While restricting his work to the “rectangular shape hung on the wall,” he continues to create pieces that go back and forth between a solid and a plane.
