Naoya Inose Exhibition: Blue
Enter a world which explores the tension between nature and its usurpation by human influence, and blends intricate realism and anime style through oil painting techniques in Nagoya Inose’s exhibition titled Blue. The London-based Japanese artist has exhibited his art pieces in many museums, including The National Art Center Tokyo and Takamatsu City Museum of Art. He cites landscape paintings from the Romanticism period and color composition paintings by Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman as influences. Inose’s old and new works, showcased in the exhibition, are both made as “a response to intimate personal problems” and “various social and environmental issues,” as stated by the artist himself. Find out how Inose projets to these themes and admire the overlapping of two opposite styles at his first solo exhibition.
