Chihiro Yoshioka at ART OSAKA 2018

2018.7.6 [fri] - 7.8 [sun] ※Venue hours will differ depending on the day. Please see details below.

We will be presenting a solo exhibition of painter Chihiro Yoshioka, who paints ephemeral yet striking scenes with sketch-like brushstrokes on silver ground. 

Along with new works, we will focus on mimesis, a series that replicates paintings created through classical techniques, bringing to the fore the hidden accumulation of spirituality and materiality therein by crystallizing them on the painting’s surface. The exhibition will also feature muqarnas, which came out of her experiences of gazing up at the ceiling decorations of palaces, with its depictions of trees and skies viewed from below blended with dizzying bodily sensations, along with the drawings to be included in the artist edition of Yoshioka's first monograph, Chihiro Yoshioka: mimesis (limited edition of 50).

We hope you will enjoy Yoshioka’s work, which brings together questions relating to painting and intangible, infinite time-space within the “not-getting-across” that is an aspect of the act of “seeing” and therefore also the act of “painting”
