My works in, of themselves, do not possess particular meaning. Rather, they simply exist, incorporating manifold impressions from my mind.
We enter the new year, 2021, facing many challenges and changes following the spread of the novel Coronavirus across the globe. At eN arts, we all pray that during the coming year we together can find the best solutions to live with the virus around us and continue to possess tranquility in our hearts.
Art, undefeated by the virus, will continue to move forward. This year our first exhibit, “exhibition 10,” will present the works of Shirako Katsuyuki. With the thought – “At this point, I wish to return for a moment to my starting point.” – Shirako is endeavoring to create new works for this, his commemorative tenth, solo show at eN arts.
For the exhibit, we will introduce works the characterize Shirako’s series “SCRIBBLE”, a body of works to which he has regularly offered new additions over the years since his initial debut. This exhibit embodies Shirako’s sense of beauty with each carefully carved, polished, and refined work having been placed one by one in the gallery space to maintain a peaceful balance. Please enjoy the exhibit.
(To ensure that we can all appreciate these works with peace of mind, eN arts welcomes our guests only after taking the fullest precautions to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.)
The SCRIBBLE Series: A series of works, carved from single pieces of material that are then painted and lacquered, to recreate in three dimension simple freehand drawn scribbles drawn and selected by the artist.
