DMOARTS will hold a solo exhibition of Saki Matsumura for the second time in a year.
Matsumura is a painter who attempts to visualize abstract concepts. The white lines that appear in many of his works are actually blank spaces on which nothing is drawn. By depicting the surrounding shapes and colors, Matsumura expresses the human act of reading information from signs that are never concretely verbalized, as well as the space between the lines.
The works presented in this year's exhibition show a richer and more colorful expression compared to last year's exhibition. Through various exhibitions and commissioned work, the artist has evolved from the rigid world of monochrome to a unique and playful depiction.
The title "The eyes: they see" is made up of two words in an anagram relationship.
Like letters whose meanings can be changed by rearranging them, Matsumura's questions about visible phenomena and his insatiable search for the unseen are sure to be enjoyed by all.
