This event has ended.
From repetitive grid patterns to an ethereal, mist-shrouded pine forest, the paintings by Daisuke Ohba hover across the real and the illusory, establishing a pictorial field in-between as another world dimension. In Ohba’s recent hologram paintings—his signature style since 2015, canvas images are bathed in light, which radiate color diffused in all directions, suggesting the multidimensionality of pictorial space. His fourth solo exhibition with the gallery since 2017 showcases a new body of paintings where light rays reach a bed of translucent acrylic paint. Informing the audience of mythological narratives, Ohba signifies a metaphorical worldview that seeks to span from the depth of oceans to the height of skies.
