THE ART OF DECOMPOSING REALITY BY YUICHI IKEHATA

The art of decomposing reality by Yuichi Ikehata

In the complex photographic works of the Japanese visionary Yuichi Ikehata sail seemingly opposite paradigms, but intimately connected between reality and fiction. The artist’s recent monochromatic works have been splitted in two series, the first one is an “Observer’s Report” with which he creates his works using his body and art objects that he created for himself. In the second series, he inserted an imaginary character, an observer , who wanders this boundary between reality and fiction. Yuichi Ikehata said: “We live from moment to moment in a mix of truth and fiction that we consider reality. There’s a relationship between reality and fiction and for this reason is very important to understand the difference so that we are able to recognize from one another. But sometimes they are so connected to each other that we can not recognize diversity “.
In the second surreal series entitled “Fragment of Long Term Memory”, the artist studied the fragmentary nature of our memory and realized, with futurist feeling, three-dimensional sculptures of human bodies (or parts of the body) using wire, clay, paper, cables metal that, subsequently, photographs, digitally adds skin, hair, eyes, nails and other features, thus offering the viewer a final realistic image, perfect enough to bring the viewer to not distinguish what is real and what is not. The unfinished objects, with the skin flaking to reveal the underlying structure, as if they were real bodies recovered on the edge of an explosion, give the observer something to think about: “A decaying object could stimulate the spectator’s imagination more than a finished work “, the artist said. “The world of reality and non-reality is very intimate. Many parts of our memories are often forgotten or difficult to remember. I collect those fragmented moments, modify them, fix them, reconstruct them as surreal images. However, “it is my real world”, he finally said.

Posted on 0

The incredible sculptures of the eclectic Tomohiro Inaba

The incredible sculptures of the eclectic Japanese artist Tomohiro Inaba are made primarily of iron. He starts with anatomically correct shapes that then seem to explode into incredible complex weaves as if they were wire scribbles. Depending on the way you look at it, the density of the steel is reduced as the sculpture moves, to provide the illusion of movement. Each sculpture seems to act as a reminder of our temporary state. Tamoiro Inaba often incorporates everyday objects into his work of art.

Living Sculpture By Mari Katayama

Born with a rare condition, the artist has chronicled her life in portraits – capturing everything from her tattooed prosthetics to the tentacled creature she stitched together on the shores of Naoshima. Mari Katayama was born with tibial hemimelia, an extremely rare condition that stops bones in the lower legs from fully developing, often leaving them foreshortened. In her case, the condition also caused club feet and a cleft left hand that resembled a crab’s pincers.
