This event has ended.
Kajioka’s works are born from wet application of hemp on board, bold touches of ink, and fine pencil etchings that create a layered surface of black. He began exploring his current style in his late teens. One night, as he was crossing a bridge over a river, he looked down at the water and felt his eyes overcome by pure darkness. The experience left him profoundly aware of the uncertainty of his own existence and transformed him from a painter who was inspired by the atmosphere of Nihonga and the traditional motifs of “flower, bird, wind, and moon” to an artist who continually depicts the warmth of light melting into darkness. Enjoy the tranquil ripples of life expressed by Toshiyuki Kajioka, an artist who has been active in New York and Paris in recent years.
