Taro Morimoto Exhibition / 森本太郎「vestiges」

7 May – 1 June, 2015

“Vestiges” of the title of the exhibition, means relic, vestige, and traces in French. Taro Morimoto has produced his paintings in following way; first, he selects an image from the prints, photos, and magazines etc. Then he develops that image into the color with PC, and further is traced on the canvas with the paint. Morimoto believes that the works under these process to be the metaphor of relic, vestige and traces. This exhibition includes the paintings, small works by embroidery and also the recent watercolors. Probably you may think these watercolor works are challenging when viewed from his style, but it can be said that his senses that have been cultivated by the process of the past are reflected. Please enjoy the exhibition of Taro Morimoto.

森本太郎は、雑誌等の印刷物や写真のなかからあるイメージを選び、それをコンピューター上で ”色の面へと変換” し、キャンバスにトレースして ”絵の具に変換” していく、という方法で絵画制作をしています。このような制作過程のなかで形を変え、最後に作品になったものは、元となるイメージの「名残」や「面影」といった「痕跡」の比喩となっていると作家は考えます。
