Concept

He is active in two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and installation works based on the theme of the rebirth and circulation of the immaculate prototype core, as well as on the ideas of memory and timelessness that accumulate in a place.

In this exhibition, he explores the essence of the intangible elements that overlapping time leads to, based on the theme of “Visionnaire”, by physically painting the present onto his own digitized works of the recent past.

Naoko Geirin

After graduating from the Faculty of Economics, he worked in banking, advertising planning, and art direction before moving to the U.S. to study fine art at the Corcoran School of Art, which he had wanted to do since he was a child.

In 2020, he moved his base of presentation to Kansai and restarted his career. He is working on two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and installation works based on the theme of regeneration and circulation of the immaculate prototype core, and the memories that accumulate in a place.

Exhibition overview

The caramelized surface, with its thinly melted color, makes you want to poke it with a fork and scoop it up with a spoon.
I feel like I can see through it and reach the innermost depths, as if there is something inside.

I want to cut through the thickest part of the mille-feuille-like layers with a knife to see what it really looks like.
What does it really look like?

Who is it that peeks through the gaps between the various times scattered on the canvas? Is it me?

Whether or not I can see something invisible, it is to the retrospect taken away from memories and cherished.
