Shunsuke Imai (1978-), who works on a series of paintings with impressive bright stripes, will hold his first solo exhibition at the museum.
The painting series, which expresses an image that looks like a wave or a flag with a unique pop color sense, is a pattern of a swaying skirt of an acquaintance that I casually saw at one time, and the colors of fast fashion piled up in mass retailers. The starting point is a strong and touching experience. Since then, Imai has continued to explore his expression while lightly moving back and forth between concrete and abstract, plane and solid, and art and design.
This exhibition will introduce different forms of expression such as 3D, video, and installation, focusing on paintings, from the initial works to the latest works. We hope that we, who live in a modern society full of various visual information, will have the opportunity to open up our senses through the fresh rhythm of colors and shapes by Imai.
