Kaeru Tsukino solo exhibition "LAYERED POP ART"
2022.11.05(Sat) – 2022.11.10(Thu)
Tsukino Kaeru's solo exhibition "LAYERED POP ART" will be held at YUGEN Gallery from Saturday, November 5, 2022 to Thursday, November 10, 2022.
Kaeru Tsukino is working on creating works that are conscious of "diversity" and "fusion" based on the several years spent in a sanatorium with children who had various problems when they were sickly.
Many of his works are semi-stereoscopic mixed media works based on original digital illustrations, combined with different materials such as metal, coated with transparent acrylic resin, and further decorated with rhinestones. By fusing a variety of materials that demonstrate their individual charms across genres, we create a unique world full of colors.
“The rise of the Internet and SNS is connecting people and making the world visible. I want to visualize invisible hierarchies,” says Tsukino.
In this exhibition, using original digital illustrations, transparent resin, and mirrors as materials, the "The world is beautiful" series, which depicts a "rich and beautiful world" woven by various elements, and the world in which he himself exists, will be presented. We will exhibit the "Focus to layers" series that Tsukino continues to create from her thoughts. Incorporating the gallery and the viewers will create a unique scenery.
Tsukino Kaeru continues to create works that make you feel that "the world is still beautiful" in this world that is infinitely multi-layered and at the same time full of various problems. Please take a look at "LAYERED POP ART" that invites you to that colorful and nostalgic world.
This exhibition will be held as the 9th exhibition curated by YUGEN Gallery for the bilingual art information magazine "ONBEAT", which reexamines Japanese art culture and disseminates its charm to the world.
