Limitation and Creation of Imagination
Curated by Eri Takane
August 5th ~ September 4th, 2016
I am participating in a four person exhibition in Tokyo during the month of August. In this exhibition I will feature a recent series of abstract paintings working with color, line and plane focusing primarily on an overall monochromatic surface with subtle gestures at top and bottom revealing the white ground of the canvas. These works confront the viewer with a single color that is intersected towards the bottom with a sharp contrasting line perforating the plane of an otherwise flat and even color field surface. I will also feature a recent video work in the galleries café bar area. This single channel video work is an appropriated stream of the ocean mined from a website for the sport of surfing. The image is a compressed and pixilated video stream which aims to reveal the material of the digital image. Kengo Kito creates a colorful alternative dimension carrying a feeling of space and organisms using inorganic and daily materials. Kito will feature an installation work comprised of hula hoops in a web of mesmerizing colors and shapes. Another work is a two dimensional sculptural wall piece with LED lights fastened as vibrant objects glowing with various forms. Taro Shinoda executes expansive installations and projects with the theme of nature and humanity with skills of engineering as a means to explore these themes. This exhibition will feature Shinoda’s recent series of oil paintings. Aaron Wexler pursues the possibility of abstraction utilizing nature and pop culture in the art of collage.
