• DMOARTS in artTNZ

    2020-09-03 07:00

    DMOARTS will exhibit at "artTNZ", an art fair to be held at TERRADA ART COMPLEX II in Tennozu, Tokyo. DMOARTS will introduce two artists, Kurumi Kotani and Ryoki Kurasaki.
    Kurumi Kotani's "21g," a group of works, is said to be the weight of the soul, alluding to what once existed, and thus alluding to a supernatural existence without directly depicting it. Ryoki Kurasaki uses flames as a symbol of life and death, and in "Traces of the soul," the intense burning reminds us of finite life and what remains.
    The venue will be open by reservation only, so please make a reservation in advance and come as much as you can afford.

    Date and Time:2020/9/17(Thu)— 21(Mon)
    ※9/17(Thu) by invitation only
    1-32-8 Higashi-Shinagawa, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo 140-0002, Japan

    Kurumi Kotani
    In 2019, he will graduate from Kyoto University of Art and Design, Graduate School of Art and Design, Painting Area.
    He creates paintings on the theme of relationships, signs, and traces of existence. In her signature series of paintings, "21g," the entire screen is conceived as a "window," leaving traces of someone's touch on the condensed surface of the glass. Her interest in mystical or supernatural phenomena makes her paintings reminiscent of scenes from horror movies, bringing out the presence of an unseen and uncertain entity.

    Ryoki Kurasaki
    Born in Fukuoka, Japan in 1995, he graduated from Kyushu Designer Gakuin in 2016.
    Kurasaki attempts to pursue the reality of his motifs by burning the parts of his oil portraits that used to be the eyes. The phenomena and materials generated by the flames as a metaphor for life, the exposed space, and the structure of the canvas itself are important components of his work.
