Sunset in the Morning

Kentaro Kobuke & Masanori Ikeda

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Two Japanese artists; Kentaro Kobuke and Masanori Ikeda. The former is a painter based in London, who works on wood-board with colour-pencil, and the latter is a photographer based in Tokyo, who takes single-shot photographs using 6x7 format.

Both Kobuke and Ikeda's styles are light, subtle and tranquil, no shock tactics or visual attacks are employed. This typifies a neutral viewpoint frequently shared by the 'Post-Murakami and Nara generation' in the contemporary Japanese art scene.

Utilising familiar motives, the mystification evoked by unexpected changes of disposition in their work is what the title Sunset in the Morning implies. Sentimentalism and nostalgia can be aroused by their descriptions. These bizarre and innocent sensibilities are the keys to unveiling today's 'surreality'.
