Disappearing subject Expanding silence
Chigasaki Municipal Museum of Art will hold a special exhibition “Shusuke Shirota-Photo as well as PAINT, SEEING PHOTOS-” from December 14, 2019 (Sat) to February 11, 2020 (Tuesday / Holiday). This is the first solo exhibition at an art museum in Japan by Keisuke Shirota, an artist who is known for his unique expression technique using photographs and paintings and attracts much attention overseas. Exhibition URL Shirota’s production is based on a snap shot taken casually, and a painting that draws an imaginary landscape as if spreading around it, and the background of the person’s part as if to erase the person on the photo We will show various developments, such as publishing new works drawn with oil paintings by extracting only the photograph works buried in and the people reflected in the pictures. All the works are made based on photographs, and it should be noted that the scenes drawn in the photographs and the people drawn with the paint are separated from the realistic relationship, “Nothing” and “ It ’s a consistent tranquility as if “nobody” exists.
