The following is an outline of this exhibition.
The seven artists introduced in this exhibition are selected with a focus on flat painting expression, and are conscious of the “gap”, including the techniques and subjects they handle, as well as the background and career of each artist.
In diversifying pictorial expressions, it is constructive to confirm the standing position of each of the many subdivided genres by repeating divergence and approach, and to build a relationship that enhances each other’s strength.
In recent years, I feel that there are more and more opportunities to see the big divisions that arise from criticism and denial, so it is a artists to be positively aware of the “gap” and to seek new expressions without being bound by attributes. It is a sincere attitude.
In addition, this exhibition was originally scheduled to be held from April to May of this year. There is no change in the exhibiting artist or title, but the meaning will change significantly.
We are standing in the “gap” of the times, as the environment of labor and learning, which was the norm in our daily lives, and the places and opportunities for presenting works have disappeared.
Please enjoy the powerful works by seven artists who continue to face the production in a stoic manner as each of them faces unprecedented frustration as they are forced into a completely different daily life.
Although it is an exhibition in the corona wreck that has not yet converged, we would appreciate it if you could take a look when you come near us. Thank you for your cooperation.
