I am pleased to announce my solo exhibition "Psychomachia" at GARDE Gallery (Omotesando, Tokyo) from April 17 (Mon) to April 22 (Sat), 2023.
The title of this exhibition, "Psychomachia," is a Latin allegorical poem written by Prudentius around the 5th century, in which seven virtues and seven vices battle against each other. Various artists have created works of art in the form of sculptures, prints, and other forms based on this poem. Virtue and vice are often represented by angels, and in the poem, virtue always defeats vice, but in these works, what people see are just angels fighting each other.
In reality too, good and evil influence each other, sometimes creating situations that they become indistinguishable. In this exhibition, I will exhibit works using a technique called Fluid Art, which is rarely practiced yet in Japan, combined with collages of AI-created human figures and other objects. I hope you would enjoy undifferentiated and enigmatic images that remind you of the creation of primordial phenomena.
Patience waits quietly for her enemy, the rage, to destroy itself by its own violence.
From the end of the world, where the sun sets, comes indulgence. Reputation means nothing to her
Because it is already lost.
