ホワイトストーン・ギャラリー台北は、『インサイド: アヒ・チョイ個展』を開催致します。アヒ・チョイは兵庫県に生まれ、2014年のニューヨークでの展示以降評価が高まり、以後国際的に活躍しています。アヒ・チョイの作品にみられる滑らかな曲線の動きは軽快かつ高揚感に満ちており、自身が内面に抱える冒険心が如実に現われています。ロスアンゼルスで学んだ後アメリカ西部をくまなく旅行したというアヒ・チョイは、国立公園の圧倒的な迫力に深い感銘を受けます。自然の威厳と偉大さを探求し、制作に反映し始めたのはまさにこの時だといいます。帰国し神戸へ居を定めてからは、今度は日本の窮屈で混沌とした都市のライフスタイルが作家にノスタルジーを呼び起こします。作家はペンを執り、それまでの冒険を抽象的な日記として紙に書き留め始め、記憶の泉から呼び覚まされた事物のシルエットや心象、言葉、文字の形といったものが悉くエネルギッシュな線描へと変貌しています。

ARTIST

AHHI CHOI
Ahhi Choi was born in Hyogo Prefecture Japan in 1983. The curvilinear movement in the work of Ahhi Choi is both buoyant and ecstatic, expressing the innate sense of adventure the artist possesses. He gained recognition after showing in New York in 2014 and has since exhibited internationally including in the United States, France, Italy, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong. Choi's work can be perceived as reflection of his subconscious mind. After studying in Los Angeles he traveled through the Western United States. During that trip, Choi explored the expansive network of National Parks, from Death Valley, the Grand Canyon to Yellowstone. It was during this stateside excursion that the artist developed an intimate bond with the grandeur and majesty of nature. Upon his return to his home city of Kobe, a malaise set in for Choi and it was the cramped and overcrowded lifestyle of urban Japan that was causing him to feel nostalgic. Taking the flashes of inspiration that the artist experienced in day-to-day life he began to take ink to paper forming an abstract diary of his adventures. Letting his hand move organically across the page, Choi would interpret the silhouettes, pictures, words and letters from the well of his memory into energetic lines that are ubiquitous in throughout his work. In addition to painting, the artist has also extensively engaged in other artistic creations, including the design of shoes, skateboards, fabrics, wine labels, cell phone cases, CD covers, and even musical instruments (didgeridoo). In 2020, dedicated his work "Naka-ima" (meaning "present time as a succession of the age of God, in Japanese mythology) to Ashiya Shrine and created votive pictures in collaboration with the shrine (sold out 200 editions immediately). He started also the creation of hanging scrolls in collaboration with a long-established Kyoto-style mounting brand "Kanouunkindou".
