Fumio Yamazaki solo exhibition

“silent neighbor”

20 Feb.Wed.- 6 Mar,Wed,2019

Imura art gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition in four years by the wood carving artist, Fumio Yamazaki.

Fumio Yamazaki’s consistent practice involves sculpting distinctive figures from a single block of wood, a technique known as ichiboku-zukuri, and then adding color with watercolors. The resulting sculptures seem somewhat bizarre at first glance. Staring into space and beaming peace and tranquility, the sculptures exude a demigod-like presence that transcends any kind of species the earth has to offer. Whether their shapes are distorted or neat and orderly, these statues are presented front and center in a positive way, accepting all. How they are received depends on the viewer’s frame of mind, which produces a sense of being questioned.

Created through long hours of self-reflection by the artist, these statues work their way into our hearts, charming us with their simple forms and the unique warmth of wood carving.

This exhibition is an opportunity to discover Fumio Yamazaki’s ‘silent neighbors’ with their loquacious stares.

Hearing the chime from the nearby shipyard signaling 5:00 PM, I realized that I’d spent another whole day just sitting in front of something that I’d started and got no further. I was lost again. It’s a bad habit, but this sort of time is important to me. When I wander down an unfamiliar road and sense the face of something strange peeking out from the edge, capturing that vision will make my work come alive.

“Space of water”

"a water J"

10 Apr.Wed.- 21 Apr.Sun.2019

“Shape”of water The series is made using the techniqe called “Photogram”
Photograms are made by a camera-less process,meaning without having to go through the human eye ,thus enables to capture directly from the photographic paper,a different dimension of the vision.
Although plastid bottles for beverage are born as container that is destined to be disposable , Its form is extremely diversified.

I collected a lot of plastic bottles, packed the water in it, I tried it on device called a “Photograpy”.
Exposed with light , the photographic paper reacts chemically and traces the diffuusely reflecting water inside the bottles.
What emerges is a sort of expression of the intangible water ,and also a trace of light which is invisable to the eye.
“Shape”of water is in the region between real and unreal.

Hayato Nishimura

10 Apr.Wed.- 21 Apr.Sun.2019

Nishimura has exhibited photographic works taken at scientific research sites, focusing on the relationship between special environments and human beings. In this exhibition, he focused on particle accelerators for physics experiments open to researchers. Researchers visiting the experimental facility will change the lines according to the conditions of the experiment required for each research theme. The stacking of lines that have continued to change shape over the years is no different than the accumulation of thought and acts of unspecified researchers who shared the purpose of investigating a part of the truth in the universe.
