Taro Morimoto Exhibition / 森本太郎「静謐のありか」

11 May – 7 June, 2017
about

The curtain in the window of a house the artist discovered when out for a walk was something that caught his eye at the time, and so he photographed it. Now, looking back on it, it has become something that incorporates a sense of Morimoto. Morimoto creates his works by taking images like printed materials and photographs, altering their colors on the computer, and then tracing them onto a canvas and turning them into paintings. This exhibition focuses on new works with the motif of fabric pleats, the light and shadow of the motif images, the light and shadow created by Morimoto’s three-dimensional lines, the waving motion of the pleats, the undulations of the wave-like lines… The paintings that unfold, while being images, at the same time also appear as reliefs with substance. We hope you will come and take a look.

散歩の際に見つけたある家の窓辺にあったカーテン、その時気になって撮ったものが、見返した今、森本の感覚を受け入れるものになったといいます。森本は、印刷物や写真などの画像をコンピューター上で色面に変換してそれをキャンバスにトレースするという方法で絵画制作しています。本展では、布の襞をモチーフにした新作を中心に、モチーフのイメージの光と影、森本の立体的な線が作り出す光と影、そして襞状の波打つ動き、波状の線がみせるうねり..、イメージでありながら同時に物質でもあるレリーフのような佇まいの絵画が展開されます。ぜひご高覧ください。
