Shinji Ohmaki's works at Daikanyama Tsutaya Books
2016. Dec. 22 - 2017. Jan. 5
We are pleased to announce the exhibition of Shinji Ohmaki in Daikanyama Tsutaya Books.
Born in a family of traditional Japanese fabric, Ohmaki experienced the fate of Globalism with wanes of traditional factories, leading him to acquire fragile balance between existence and extinction as the artist's working theme. His interest in Asian philosophy also helps him to realize subtle beauty of colors and materials, although such beauty is often neglected or destroyed in our contemporary life. He works thus on various media, from canvas to three dimensional installation frequently combining lights and moving air in the given space.
Ohmaki has already appeared in various museum exhibitions as well as international art events including Setouchi Triennale 2010 where he created a symbolic permanent pillar-piece at the welcoming port of Takamatsu. His recent installation "Liminal Air" at Mori Art Museum, uniting delicateness and distinctive power, led a path to capture a focus by numerous art professionals from Western countries. In fact, he initiated art project in Hermes Sèvres in Paris, and also high featured theatrical stage set for Louis Vuitton in 2016 -17 Fall / Winter collection. Further, a new major project is now ongoing with the curators in Netherlands for Capital City in Europe in 2017.
