He’s second exhibition with the gallery, entitled Save the Date, showcases his most recent works that depicts body senses, haptic perception and the transmission of feeling. Central to the exhibition is My Feet (2016), diptych drawings made by the artist’s feet actions, where he stands on paper and jumps across the two areas. The subtlety of human feelings -- anxiety, fear, tension and impatience - are brought to light, to remind us of the difficulty of transcribing one’s emotions.
Site-specific wall installation, Olive Oil (2016), shows a height of his minimalistic approach and his acute sensitivity to everyday objects. In this work, the artist applies organic olive oil across a long expanse of the gallery wall. The area of absorbed oil on the wall will expand its area with time emitting faint fragrance. In his lemon series, He paints lemon shapes randomly against vivid yellow background, emphasizing the effect of color yellow in the white gallery space. After his extensive research concerning human interaction with the color yellow - from biological retina reaction to Sunflower student protest in 2014, Taiwan- He suggests the intense power of the color yellow eliciting an instant excitement to the viewer.
Save the Date will be held concurrently with the corresponding exhibition at Kaikai Kiki Gallery (Minato-ku Moto-Azabu).
