MASAYUKI TSUBOTA: Unknown Memories

Seoul

2024.03.30 – 04.28

Masayuki Tsubota is celebrated for his expertise in minimalist aesthetics and his profound exploration of natural materials. In this exhibition, Tsubota unveils a collection characterized by predominantly black and white tones, intricately handcrafted textures, and a harmonious blend of organic elements.

Through sculptures and three-dimensional pieces meticulously crafted from basswood, Tsubota creates a captivating fusion of minimalism and innovation, evoking a profound sense of depth and tranquility. At the core of Tsubota’s artistic vision lies a deep reverence for nature and its intrinsic beauty. By employing traditional techniques and natural pigments sourced from the earth, Tsubota infuses vitality into his creations, inviting viewers on a sensory journey that transcends conventional art boundaries.

Central to Tsubota’s exploration is the concept of "unknown memories" – a notion that encapsulates the intangible essence of human experience and emotion. Through his evocative use of color and texture, Tsubota encourages viewers to reconnect with their subconscious, prompting reflections on the profound significance of the natural world amidst the chaos of modern life. According to Tsubota, the colors of nature resonate deeply within the human psyche, influencing our dreams and shaping our consciousness.
