銀箔

Silver Foil for Fusuma

作品名: Untitled AMAMI 2024

展示エリア: 琉球ヴィラ ビロウ

アーティスト: Shuhei Fukuda

東京藝術大学大学院博士課程美術研究科美術専攻壁画第一研究室 博士課程在籍中。日本画への研鑽を経て、日本の伝統的な素材と技法を用いて現代的なアプローチを試る。特に銀箔を素材に、作品を自然に放置することで、銀に生じる変色を作家と素材の緩やかな関係性として表象しています。素材や作品の物質性を表面に強く提示することで、自然のありのままを重んじる東洋的な自然観と美的感覚を追求している。

主な個展に「Quiet colors」(RUE VERTE、コペンハーゲン・デンマーク、2023 年 ) 、「変化 / 不変=普遍」( アーツ千代田 3331、東京、2019 年 ) 。主なグループ展に「ashes and silver leaf」(Hebel_121、バーゼル・スイス、2023 年 )、「Depository Archeology」(kvalitar、プ ラハ・チェコ共和国、2023 年 ) 。ヨーロッパ を中心に展覧会を開催している。
