Please join us a very special solo exhibiton by Shinichiro Inui, PRETTY LIE and UGLY TRUTH, an emerging artist from Japan. Opening reception with wine and cheese will be on Thursday, December 1st from 6 to 8pm. The exhibition is on view from November 29th through December 3rd at Jadite Galleries.
Inui’s first exhibition in New York will showcase his new collections of paintings and photographs as well as clothes and leather bags which he designed.
Inui’s work is known for his graffiti style, which he achieves by using photographs and common items such as pieces of clothes. By combining all of these items, Inui breaks down what is accepted as common sense through the use of simple designs. Inui is quoted as explaining, “I aim to reveal beauty that exists where reality has been destroyed. Such beauty can only be realized through loss. Destruction and regeneration, in this way, is the theme of my work.” Inui is inspired by the vanity of items surrounding us and attempts to gain a sense of life’s richness. Inui elaborates, “Sensitivity to the ephemerality of decaying objects and appreciation of beauty of imperfections are unique to Japanese aesthetics. Although the act of destruction is negative, it can also be a starting point for the birth of beauty.”
