“When many people look at them and draws attention, it becomes a mirror ball.” The solo exhibition “Mirror” by Takuya Yonezawa, a young painter based in Teshio-cho will be held at the Clark Gallery + SHFT in Sapporo from January 6th to 27th, 2018. He is doing a unique art education at junior high school that made use of his experience as an artist.
Takuya Yonezawa was born in 1989. “Painting is an entertainment that the viewer himself spreads the world from there”, he finds interesting possibilities from everyday life and aims to create a space that allows viewers to share unusual experiences with his work. While its surface is pop, the work invites the viewer to a trip to the unknown world. His work was adopted as an advertising visual of the Sapporo Art Exhibition “Travel is fun to get to the destination” held at Sapporo Art Museum in 2017. At the venue of the international contemporary art fair “Art Fair Sapporo“, he astonishes visitors every year with his impromptu paintings that are rich in originality.
In this exhibition, he assumed that “there is a mirror reflecting one by one against a look and thinking from an individual when people pay attention to something”, and attempting to realize the accumulation of the mirror, retouch to his “Mirror” series which painted the gypsum image like a mirror ball. He reconstructs a dozen of works with half of the new works incorporating another motif, according to the exhibition space.
