Saki Matsumura solo exhibition “Chi to zu”
Saki Matsumura, whose latest solo exhibition "the eyes: they see" will be held at DMOARTS, will simultaneously hold a solo exhibition "the earth and the figure" at H.P.FRANCE WINDOW GALLERY MARUNOUCHI in Marunouchi, Tokyo.
Saki Matsumura constructs multi-layered screens using various techniques such as stencil and silkscreen.
The title of this exhibition is taken from the book by E.J. Rubin, a psychologist who proposed "Rubin's vase," which is a representative example of Gestalt psychology. One of the concepts described in the book is that people cannot perceive things that extend uniformly to their field of vision, and that they perceive shapes only when there are two dissimilar regions. These two areas are divided into "figure" and "ground," with "figure" emerging as a form and "ground" as its background. There is no clear motif in Matsumura's works. However, after viewing his works, a strong image remains in the viewer's mind. This is the result of his careful selection of the elements of his works, such as the fine texture of the materials, the rubbing of the paint, and the unevenness in certain areas, and his painstaking composition, which sometimes inverts the relationship between the ground and the figure.
We hope you will take this opportunity to visit the exhibition.
