Ikkan Art Gallery presents its second solo exhibition ‘facing the afterimage’ with Japanese artist, Mikito Ozeki, from Nagoya, Japan, from 8 May to 6 June 2015. Following the Ozeki’s presentation at Art Stage 2015 and Clear Edition & Gallery, in Tokyo last year, this Singapore exhibition brings together new and existing works that exemplifies his unceasing exploration into the potentialities of paper cutting.


Ozeki’s latest works remind us once more that paper cutting is a three dimensional expression. Keeping in mind one’s perception that changes with the position the work is viewed from, he adopts a significantly different approach to layering and creating depth than that of painting. Facing the afterimage of mark making with his cutting knife and paper in tow, Ozeki laboriously etches new realms of possibility in the tradition of paper cutting.
