meta meta
from Foil Tokyo

Embodying the idea of "beyond" or "higher" in the title wording of "meta", this first collection book of Ryoji Arai exposes the other side of the artist, who established his career as children's book author, and explores the new possibility of his works as contemporary art, to go beyond the existing categories. From joyful paintings on canvas painted like playing music, to calmly but emotionally drawn drawings, this book extensively collects more than 100 works of the artists covering both existing and newly produced works. Particularly seen in the way how those works are represented, eg, close-up of paintings, which clearly shows the lively brush touches to numbers of drawings stiffly and loosely places in a spread, his works are playing around in this book freely and designlessly. Taking inspiration from the notion of synesthesia, Ryoji Arai's "meta meta" allow us to experience hopeful and surprising world of the artist with all sensories.
