4 December - 19 December
Yamamoto Keiko Rochaix is pleased to announce a group show ‘Small Works’.
Despite its size, small scale works could be powerful in effect, revelatory of the artists’ central concerns, or precursor for the future works. Small size itself contributes to the relatable and intimate feel, and together with the playfulness that comes from the artists’ willingness to experiment or take risks, small works often enjoy special connection with the viewers; something of an ‘attachement’ of a human scale.
Alessandro Roma is known for his unique world of inexplicable melange of colours and shapes, that could be read as abstract take of the natural world with strong and undeniable organic feel.
Byzantin Harlow‘s small bronze as well as mixed media sculptures fascinate with their ‘magical’ air characteristic of the young artists’ oeuvre. Even at small scale, Harlow’s powerful works never fail to infer the larger world beyond, to which they undoubtedly belong to.
Delaine Le Bas‘s small painting on wooden board describe a fainted bride being held and taken by a devil. Use of primitive colours and its naive figures may catch eyes at first, but it is its mysterious quality that may draws in the viewers.
Gabriel Esteban Molina‘s enigmatic GIF may appear to be projecting an alternative universe, absorbing and hypnotic, far removed from our immediate environment.
Radouan Zeghidour‘s marble sculptures is so small it can be held in one hand, and the inscriptions of works and images can be examined very closely, as if an archeologist inspecting a newly found artefact uncovered from the ground.
Ryohei Kan‘s blue-print works visualise the concept of the endless space, on which his video works are based on. A photo from the White Cube series shows a corner of a almost blank space, which is artificially created, but feels strangely familiar.
