Daishin Sumimoto: Older than Now

Costume 3, 2008

Over de expositie

“I don’t need imagination or illusion,” says Daishin Sumimoto about his own paintings. It is true, his subjects seem very mundane. Taken straight from life. A house, a roof covered in snow with one corner melted and exposing the roof tiles; a stem of broccoli or dishes soaking in a tub. But are these images really so ordinary? Sumimoto’s brush seems to take the objects to a different reality. A metalevel. Perhaps this is how Plato imagined his metaworld. A world full of inspired images that are never exactly the things themselves, but a reflection of an idea of what they might be.
