Second Party for Takuro Sugiyama Solo Exhibition: 17:00 - 20:00 on 11th December
This exhibition is also involved in the project, "OSAKA ART COMPLEX Vol.3"
YOD Gallery is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition by Takuro Sugiyama, PLUS "MASS", that will be held from 26th November to 25th December 2010.
Sugiyama concentrates on representing his intuitive sense to form objects transcending the border between the second dimension and the third dimension, painted on canvases in the good use of lines and sides drafted by hands in all the process. His reputation as a new generation of abstract expression has increased in group shows and art fairs since he had his solo exhibition in 2 years ago.
Sugiyama’s visionary third-dimensional sense that he tries to express on canvases is an infinite challenge to human’s faculty of sight. There are lots of contradiction and tricks in his third-dimensional expression by brush strokes. His paintings make the viewer’s eyes confused and paralyse the viewer’s sense of space. He deliberately represents fictional forms created in his imagination, which could be defined like the 2.5th dimension that was unable to exist in the physical space.
In this exhibition, Sugiyama’s complicated sense of space transcended from the reality, in which the element of "mass" is progressively added to his unusual dimensionaｌ sense, will be filled in the gallery space. It can be said that the new execution with his sense of "mass" is the second stage for his activity of representing formed objects painted on canvases.
Sugiyama has turned his attention to the concept of "gravity" as he had searched how many senses he could express by simply using only lines and sides by brush strokes. He thinks that the existence of "gravity" is necessary for the third-dimensional universe. By complicatedly manipulating lines, sides and colour contrasts by brush strokes, his new execution of forming objects on the flat canvases is represented against "gravity" that heads toward the core of the earth. The vector of "gravity" and irregular energy powered by Sugiyama in his paintings could completely breakup viewer’s general sense of "Mass". Sugiyama’s dynamism of representing forms, which has been reinforced and tries to transcend the human’s ability to analyse space, would pioneer a new concept of abstract expression.
