• Koga Miura solo exhibition「come and go」

    2022-05-10 12:00

    We are pleased to announce "come and go," the first solo exhibition in Osaka by Kansai-based artist Mitsumasa Miura.
    Miura was born in 1997 in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan, and graduated from Kyoto University of Arts in 2021 with a Master's degree in oil painting. He creates two-dimensional works based on the themes of "consciousness and unconsciousness," "artifice and randomness," and "production and non-production.

    The color scheme and composition of the three works are determined by random numbers and cannot be controlled by the artist, while the production process is done in analog by the artist.

    This is the first solo exhibition in Osaka in Miura's career, having participated in numerous group shows and art fairs in Japan and abroad. In addition to new works from the series of artworks he has presented in the past, Miura will take this opportunity to showcase a new series of works to be presented in conjunction with this exhibition.

    The exhibition is also one of the venues for "ART WALK Dojima/Nakanoshima," a satellite event of the art fair "art stage OSAKA 2022" scheduled to be held during the exhibition period. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to view art in Osaka in early summer.

    [Artist Statement]
    He produces two-dimensional works using random numbers and written instructions, with the main themes of "consciousness and unconsciousness," "artifice and randomness," and "production and non-production. He uses random numbers to determine the process of composition and color scheme, which require the artist's decision-making in the production process, and outputs them through his own body. In the same way that an accidental expression that cannot be controlled by the artist is created through the repetition of a simple task according to instructions, he creates works in order to reaffirm and affirm the out-of-bounds nature of our daily lives.
