Over de expositie

Igarashi’s fundamental research into form, color and surface struck a chord when it made its first appearance in our gallery in 2016. We showed a series of paintings from the 1970s which had been treated by scraping off the paint layers with meditative precision. Igarashi uses this method to investigate ways of making ideas of time and space coincide in his work. This fascination can be traced back to the concept of ‘being-time’, a fundamental notion in Zen Buddhism. This translation of an ancient philosophical tradition into a contemporary abstract image has been a distinctive characteristic of Japanese art during the past decades.
