The gallery has reopened on June 2 and will be extending the exhibition’s end date.
Shinsuke Tomita works mainly in oil painting and copperplate printing. His debut solo show in Tokyo features selected copperplate prints and some new works. The scenes in his prints are enigmatic, with the quality of cinema – we are not always quite sure what we are looking at. Tomita begins on the copperplate with a “vague image” and, as he marks the surface and conducts test prints, the composition grows ‘firmer.’
“It’s like a dialogue with myself when starting to draw and the image made on the copperplate,” he says.
