Mr. TAKESHI-KUN solo exhibition "Uncertain precision"2 June 2008 (Mon) – 23 June 2008 (Mon)
When I was in the university, I was keen on “hyper-realism” or arts like “Gerhard Richter”. So often I painted studies of them. Soon later I shifted to use air brush to kill my own drawing character and texture on surface.
The process of my recent production is, I look at a photo and enlarge it with my eyes on canvas by drawing. I believe that my drawings get different impression from just printingly enlarged picture, by passing through myself as a filter.
Copying closely of the original photo printing by using air brush, which leaves no characteristic texture on its surface, is apparently recognized to be inconvenience. But in backwards, it rather has a possiblity to fixate my character on its surface in proper way. Even more, photo and air brush already became indispensable materials to extract my originality, which I can think worth to express. Now I think photography, air brush and myself as the whole system to produce my drawing. And decided to change my artist name from “Takashi Nagase” to “Mr.TAKESHI-KUN”.
I hope you get something from the works by “Mr.TAKESHI-KUN”.
