Chihiro Kabata - Following the Shadow
29st May - 21st June
Art Front Gallery is pleased to announce Chihiro Kabata's solo exhibition.
Chihiro Kabata, born in 1978 in Fukuoka, was raised in Tokyo and began life as an artist upon finishing a graduate degree at Musashino Art University, in 2004. She went on to attract attention at the Mot Annual in 2011, and at VOCA in 2012. Art Front Gallery has presented her work since 2010, and this will be the 5th exhibition. Kabata has also been very active internationally, having held a solo show in Switzerland and participated in an Artist-in-Residence programme in Singapore.
Kabata offers a world of abstract expression produced in oil, but not made with brushes. She works directly with hands or fingers, also using lines made in layers of ballpoint pen. She realises her main concept, which is grasping the invisiable, adding some selected materials, such as mirrors or transparent acryric.
