Gallery Yamaki Fine Art is proud to announce “Special Show / Cutting×Pasting”.
For this opportunity we will present a fine selection of works from previous shows which relate to this exhibition’s concept ‘Cut and Paste’.
Louis CANE (1943-), a renowned member of the “Supports/Surface” movement which flourished in Southern France from late 1960s to early 70s, has been questioning the conventional ideas of painting. He cuts and pastes the supports of a painting, for example the canvas or the paper and plays an important role in exploring new forms of painting.
On the other hand, Takesada MATSUTANI (1937-) and Susumu KOSHIMIZU (1944-) cut and paste contrasting materials and entertain us visually, thus guiding us to the boundaries of the objects and different aspects of each material. Going back and forth, our senses and perceptions begin to waver.
The layered paper works from Sadaharu HORIO (1939-) and Seiichi SHIBATA (1984-) feature the depths and rhythms of layering shape and color and exemplify the artists’ interests in the combinations of layers created by cutting and pasting. Furthermore Horio’s work laid on the gallery’s floor, is almost as if his brushstrokes has been cut out as an object and pasted on the floor, a dynamic ‘cut and paste’ act crossing over surface and space.
Jean LE GAC (1936-) who develops works which intersect mediums of photography and painting and the photographic artist Minho LEE (1959-), both create several frames within the same work. Our eyes wander in and out the frames, creating new stories, and here we can see their works present another effective result from the act of cutting and pasting.
Through the variety of expression of cutting and pasting in each artist and their works, this exhibition will explore new perspectives on the methods of ‘Cut and Paste’.
