Floating Strokes is an exhibition of new works by Yu Kawakita, Nao Matsumoto and Nobuhiro Nakanishi, three young Japanese artists who participated in last year’s successful group show Senjiru–Infusion. Galerie Kashya Hildebrand is pleased to give these artists from Kansai a platform to show their most recent work.
Kawakita, Matsumoto und Nakanishi work with very different media and techniques, but share their interest in everyday phenomena and how we perceive them. Depicting the ephemeral and the fleetingness of life and nature form the inspiration for many of these artworks. The quiet and meditative artworks endow these invisible and ungraspable phenomena with forms which allow us to ponder these topic and at the same time be confronted with our own transience in a subtle and unobtrusive way. The artists not only raise questions about the perception of reality but also about the formal conceptions of space and the void.
Opening reception in the presence of the artists:
Thursday, 2 July 2009, 6 – 8 pm
