Ikkan Art Gallery is pleased to present its second solo exhibition of Japanese media artist, Naoko Tosa, from Fukuoka, Japan. Following her projection mapping exercise at the Kyoto National Museum, TOSA RIMPA: The Places You Will Never Visit breathes new life into the historical Rimpa school of Japanese painting.

 

The exhibition which commences from August 5 to September 19, 2015, presents Tosa’s reimagining and reinterpretations of traditional Japanese culture and imagery through six new video works.

With her characteristic use of media and video, Tosa further expands on the notion of creative destruction, as both a thing of beauty and an ominous force. Nature remains a central motif in her video works, its hidden beauty often threshed out by its destruction. Against sharp vicissitudes of colors and textures, beginnings and ends intermingle in swift elegiac motions where flowers are ruined and restored, broken down before they are reconstructed again.
