Hino gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Fumio Takamizawa from Monday, May 9th, 2022.

Takamizawa has created many works that suggest memory and time through the act of "repeating" and "layering". During the 1980s, he shifted his creative focus to painting, and for the past 20 years he has been consistently employing the same techniques to produce oil paintings.

The transitions of nature, such as reflections and shimmering of light on the surface of water, are the impetus for his work, but the results are screens filled with meandering multi-colored lines. The traces of the layers of paint can be seen as an accumulation of scenes that capture fleeting moments, and the visualization of time is both paradoxically ephemeral and eternal.

For Takamizawa, the creation of these paintings, which can now be considered his life's work, may be directly related to the act of living. "Repetition" is a behavioral part of everyday life, and if making work is a part of this process for the artist, the connection between art and life is synonymous. However, everything is constantly changing, and although we seem to be repeating the same things over and over again, incremental transition takes place. Through the development of the paintings by Takamizawa over the years, we can be aware of the changing state of nature, including human beings, and a conception of Seisei-Ruten; the cycle of life and death.

This will be his first solo exhibition at our gallery in four years, since 2018. Despite the world having been radically transformed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope you will be able to see how Takamizawa's works have subtly changed in accordance with calmer natural cycles.
