FUTAGAWA KAZUYUKI: Humanity Reconciling with Nature
Ginza New Gallery
January 21 - February 19, 2022
We are pleased to announce Kazuyuki FUTAGAWA’s solo exhibition “Humanity Reconciling with Nature” at Whitestone Ginza New Gallery.
While inheriting Japanese painting techniques, he uses mineral pigments to paint carefully. He believes that only the use of mineral pigments can truly present the beauty of nature. The colors faintly present the shining luster of natural minerals. It is not as heavy as oil painting under repeated stacking, and it is not as easy to render as watercolor. The picture looks as thin as a cicada’s wings. He often incorporates gold paint and golden leafing techniques into his creations. His art would shimmer under various lightings. Combining the Western style that captures the light and shadow. Giving traditional flat Japanese painting a sense of perspective and texture. It truly expresses the scenery in the eyes of the artist in the tranquil landscape.
The paintings of Kazuyuki FUTAGAWA are full of profound spirituality. Transcend reality and sublimate it into a beautiful and dazzling spiritual landscape. In recent years, he has published works of realistic characters created in ink shades that have opened up a new realm, bringing viewers deeper amazement. The representative work of his new attempt, “A Few Seconds’ Gestures” had received the Excellence Award at “Sompo Japan FACE Exhibition” in 2013.
In this exhibition, he realized the symbiosis between the inner landscape that comes to the human mind and the real nature. We cordially invite you to see this sustainable new phase of FUTAGAWA’s art.
