    DMOARTS is pleased to present “there-was,” a duo exhibition of works by Ryoki Kurasaki and Kurumi Kotani. The exhibition focuses on the concept of two contemporaries having in common ‘trace’ or ‘sign’ ― in other words, what ‘there-was.’

    倉崎稜希|Ryoki Kurasaki
    Kurasaki finishes his pieces of work by processing with fire as a metaphor for life. The substances and phenomena̶the exposed space and the transformed medium̶ that occurred by flame are his essential material. The exhibition “there-was” features the brand new series that wax-modeled framed painting melts by fire, as well as the partly burned portraited oil painting on the place where eyes are supposed to be.

    小谷くるみ|Kurumi Kotani
    Kotani presents mainly painting work in the theme of time, trace, sign̶in other words, what there was. The exhibition “there-was” features signature series “21g,” the entire surface is compared as “window,” and on the glass with condensation are traces of someone, and the series “Iron Rust,” which is even more ambitious for the artist.
