Art Front Gallery is pleased to present Iku Harada's first solo exhibition in five years. Iku Harada's unique concept is to create a 3D virtual world of her own creation, cut out scenes from that world and express them as 2D paintings. Harada reinterprets painting, which is historically compared to a 'window', as the PC display being our modern window, and has been active as a simulation painter since around 2009, attracting a lot of attention.

In recent years, when the world of virtual reality has become more accessible, we have come to understand the work she creates as a contemporary mode of expression that more clearly illustrates the interrelationship between the virtual and real worlds. Harada has continued to cut out fragments of her own virtual world without losing sight of her concept, and has repeatedly structured her exhibitions to present them in the form of paintings, sometimes in a rather immediate manner. At the same time, the world seen through the window of her paintings is a narrative expression that encompasses the artist's feelings and life stage at the time. When we look back at Harada's work to date as a single body of work, we can see it as a larger story that reveals who she is. Over the past five years, Iku Harada has exhibited on the international stage, first in Taiwan, then in Singapore and South Korea, and has grown considerably. At her recent solo exhibition in South Korea, for the first time she attempted a collaborative production, leaving the way she perceives the world in the hands of a third party. The result is a work that touches the depths of her psyche, where the paintings she draws have an expansive depth, and beyond that, multiple entrances to new virtual worlds are prepared for her. As a result, she reaffirms the way she sees her world. In this exhibition, as the title suggests, she shows her world depicted in the window as it has always been - as a short story (or as a landscape painting) or as a prose poem (or as an abstract painting). However, the way the work is seen is very different, with the painting as the window, and with an awareness of what lies beyond that window. Please take a look at the world Harada wants to convey through the window of each work.
