New Exhibition : Akashi Teramoto -Viewing Flowers from Verso-
N project is pleased to present “Viewing Flowers from Verso”, a solo exhibition by Akashi Teramoto, from October 21 (Sat) to November 10 (Fri), 2023.
Akashi Teramoto, born in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1992, completed his master’s degree in oil painting at Tama Art University and currently works out of a shared studio in Sagamihara City named Art space Kaikas’. Teramoto’s practice extends beyond painting—he has created installation works in the past, and the artist continuously experiments with exhibition layouts and pictorial compositions that maintain a keen awareness of spatial relations.
The majority of Teramoto’s past works are titled “Patio” and depict a neutral space, neither indoor nor outdoor, where an array of random elements—everyday appliances, people, objects, fragments of landscapes from the artist’s own memories—are painted with equal importance. Teramoto often builds upon what he has previously made, weaving together cohesive paintings from the relationships that emerge between his works.
This exhibition, titled “Viewing Flowers from Verso,” unveils recent works which explore typically unseen aspects of the spontaneous occurrences inherent to the creative process, as well as feelings of curiosity and fear for the areas hidden from the viewer’s eye. The paintings demonstrate a mindfulness of the equality between the artist and the artwork.
October 21(Sat) – November 10 (Fri), 2023
