Takehiro Terabayashi -LIFE III-

Nov 25 - Dec 18, 2016
11:00-19:00 Closed on Tue, Wed
Yoshimi Arts


Yoshimi Arts will hold a  solo exhibition of Takehiro Terabayashi, “LIFE III”, for the first time in two and a half years.               

In recent years while it has become a major trend for many artists to use various mediums such as photographs, Takehiro Terabayashi has been consistent in his style of drawing, spending most of his time in production standing right in front of the object to capture it through his eyes.

It can be said that, nowadays, where most people look at things via internet, objects are viewed two-dimentionally, and events as flat information.  On the contrary, Terabayashi has been creating works with an extreme obsession of looking at real things. He also says that what inspires him the most is when he selects motifs that make him feel special and genuine cravings for drawing. These words also describe the very essence of his works; what consists in his works are his urges to draw “insignificant things” that can be found in the day in the life of an ordinary household.

In this exhibition we will present objects and sceneries in and around his house that he has been drawing since the last solo exhibition, as well as his new works.
