A exhibition of artist H.K’s unique view of the world is taking place at Kinosho Kikaku Gallery.
H.K. considers his works more as landscape paintings than a composition of flowers and human figures. The unique spacial composition of “ma” (“gap”) in Japanese painting elaborates the presentation of the soul trapped between life and death. The blossoming and decaying of flowers, on the other hand, symbolizes the passage of time. It is a celebration of birth and, at the same time, a farewell tribute to death. Flowers serve as an amplification of the image of human. In his works, the two surpass the physical boundaries of flowers and human and purely exist as living creatures of equality.
Note the gallery is open Tue-Sat 11:00-19:00, and closed Sun-Mon.
