This is a landscape.
We see the beauty in nature’s symmetry, patterns, textures and shades, in flowers or insects or other things. Art began by attempting to extract such beauty. Advances in science and technology widened methods of artistic expression, producing new ideas of art. Katsuki Tanaka has likewise been inspired by recent technological advances.
The artist discovered the beauty of nature when he was small. Whilst making landscapes for this exhibition, he asked himself “what do I find beautiful?” The pieces themselves have a moving effect on the audience, but can also be enjoyed as a way of communing with nature.
Pieces featured in the exhibition include a large-scale landscape meticulously hand painted as well as an 8 hour long stop frame animation film comprised of 81,000 images. The exhibition will be full of ideas from the artist, who works using a wide range of media including lenticular 3D cards, manga comics and film.
