『•』 Like a library of colors… 🖍️
The color red is still invisible on this post but you will soon see it, it is one of the new and many ways of this artist that I saw here…
I passed this morning to the studio of #akikuroda and my eyes opened wide when I discovered this large space with canvases twice as high and wide as me 😅 and all these arrangements or canvases and sculptures make my eye bubble as an art amateur and collector.
I have seen well-known works, such as his self-portraits in Minotaur, and others that are more confidential.
I fell in love with rabbits: Light, fun and sharply drawn. I had the impression that each of them would come out of their painting ✨
This gesture, this momentum is exactly what I feel when I am with Aki. At 75 years old, it is inspiring to see an artist who is so dynamic and who constantly challenges his art to improve it. Look at his Instagram and tell me what you like best! 🙂
Between Paris and Kyoto – a city where nature is present everywhere – Aki literally observes the sky.
His gaze plunges into the universe to the point of having participated in several collaborations with scientists who probe the infinite above our heads.
I like this search for scope because for me observing distant space means a willingness to discover, a mixture of curiosity and pragmatism.
To find things, you have to think about them but also act.
It also means for me a deep reflection on myself, on my inner self, as a journey to the unknown that allows me to discover who I am or who I could be.
A comfortable trip soothes me, it is often short. A distant and inner journey gives me the opportunity to see further around me, to take the time to think about my relationship with the other and certainly to surpass myself in my only life on earth.
Aki works on his paintings sometimes over more than 10 years, he starts, puts several layers, looks for the intensity that you can see here and then lets the painting – and his mind – rest;) – sometimes for a long time.
I saw sculptures that had been made as part of Opera set design projects.
For the performances, you will soon be able to follow on the internet and on the artist’s website, the upcoming performance at La Rochelle or Aki will be filmed by 3 cameras for 5 days.
Yoyo, we thought of you and all the incredible work you do around Aki’s work. Well done. It was a nice visit that we had planned months ago aha it was time to see each other again:)
