We are pleased to present "Kentaro Tajima Solo Exhibition" at Otsuka Fine Art starting October 26.
Kentaro Tajima's solo exhibition has been held once every two years.
This year will be his fourth solo exhibition at Otsuka Fine Art, and he will be showing approximately 20 works, mainly new works.
Tajima's paintings pursue the sense of existence, presence, space, and time by using the colors and materiality of materials used in Japan since ancient times, such as iwa-enogu (mineral pigments) and gold paint. The production process, which is carried out by placing mineral grains on the paper as only mineral pigments can do, requires a thoroughgoing attitude toward the small format of his paintings. The repetition of this unique process, in which he paints and then washes the surface, creates a dense, multilayered effect on the painting that gives it a sense of tranquility, as if it contains the essence of time itself.
The artist will be present on the 26th and 2nd. Please come and visit us.
