Shinichi Maruyama Biography

Shinichi Maruyama exemplifies the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi–the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. In his work, he captures the underlying principle of energetic interactions between forms. The artist first started halting the passage of time through images of suspended liquids forms intending to collide in mid-air. In his series 'Nudes', Maruyama has more recently collaborated with dancers to create a sense of motion in a single photograph, through layering different frames. In its spatial illusionism and meticulous details, he inevitably points to a vortex of visual forms and sensations, where spontaneity and control stand in perfect balance. The artist’s status lies in his ability to create a new abstract visual language that generates motion and stillness in perpetuum.

Maruyama was born in 1968 in Nagano, Japan. During his high school years he became fascinated by Chinese calligraphy and photography. He studied at Chiba University and worked as a member of Hakuhodo Photo Creative. He is represented exclusively by Bruce Silverstein and has had three solo shows with the gallery.

Since the late 2000s, Maruyama’s work has been the subject of exhibition at prominent venues internationally including the Boghossian Foundation, Brussels, Belgium; Carnegie Hall, New York; The Crow Collection, Dallas; New York; Maison Particulière, Brussels, Belgium; Paris Photo, France; and the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem. His work is included in numerous public and private collections worldwide. Maruyama lives and works in New York City.
