Like picturing an image while listening to music, a tune can be heard when facing an artwork. Singing Pictures introduces artists Teppei Kaneuji, Chihiro Mori, with Yoonkee Kim, and Nonchelee who are artists as well as musicians. These four artists reflect individual taste and interest area, as their works directly represent experiential recognition.
Based in Kyoto, Teppei Kaneuji works with found images from manga or magazines, three-dimensionalizing their original flatness. Artist's Ghost in the Liquid Room series rearranges and modify photos of liquid from cosmetic and food advertisements. Especially his mobile like sculptures holds variability in its form spinning and shaking like moving fluid.
Yoonkee Kim's drawings and paintings are like fragments of his music in marker, coloured pencil, watercolour and acrylic paint. Titles of his works are quite preposterous, however, reflects the artist's ingenious thinking. Octopus human combines music and painting, it's repetitive melody allowing imagination of humorous movement of the creatures in the picture.
Currently living and working in Fukuoka, Nonchelee humorously records daily moments in his distinctive style. People enjoying music appear in most of his works, scenes of singing or dancing together cheerfully portrayed. Artist reveals his thoughts and feelings with honesty, inducing a momentary experience of the atmosphere depicted in his work.
Chihiro Mori's paintings are unusual in composition and feel unrealistic, as a result of the artist's memories of stories and landscapes from different time coexisting on one canvas.
Mori sometimes recreates doodles from adolescence, in contrast to their imperfect lines colouring on paper is elaborate and calculated in detail.
