Generating Visuals-Inspiring Circuits
How do the human activities of mind and form, of city and society, come into being? Are they given shape from something else, with blueprints prepared in advance? What if we instead suppose that they have an auto-systematic property that generates information and patterns according to their own autonomous configuration and process? Take for instance the way that communication networks naturally form through the likes of social networking services or even the process through which street art perpetually innovates the urban landscape. We can find this type of auto-systematic genesis within every human activity.
Painters, too, are involved in a network of auto-inspiration that yields new elements, stimulated by the colors, shapes, and tactile sensations that they themselves bring into being as they create the world of their art. The artists in this exhibition in particular – Yusuke Arai, Enrico Isamu Ōyama, and Goro Murayama – develop their visuals by proactively implementing such processes of genesis in the creation of their art. In this exhibition, we hope to draw attention to this pictorial expression of Genesis.
Asai, Ōyama, and Murayama each come from different backgrounds. The way each creates units via motifs, strokes, and the act of “drawing”, repeating discontinuously from one to the next, along with the constant proliferation of the patterns that produce these units, can be translated as the common term that characterizes all three. Especially in light of the sustained “temporal” aspect of these works, we must regard the efforts of these three artists as a manifestation of a more fundamental formative movement that goes beyond the realm of mere visual art.
Let us call this a “Generating Visuals -Inspiring Circuits”: the family of images and divergent drawings that flow forth from Asai; the patterns extracted from the visual language of graffiti and the variations thereof, which Ōyama has termed “Quick Turn Structure”; and the organic artwork formed from the interplay between the woven canvases and bundled strokes of Murayama. All of these come about as unsupported, unique and intrinsic formative expressions. They are part of a movement, generating a visual language one could call the “nature of the painter” according to the chain production of morphology and perpetual self-inspiration.
