Vivid Strata
by Ota Fine Arts Singapore
Location: Ota Fine Arts Singapore
Artist(s): GROUP SHOW
Date: 21 Jun - 21 Jul 2013

This summer, Ota Fine Arts is delighted to present a group exhibition featuring four contemporary artists from Asia all working in various strands of figurative representation, by means of painting, collage and video. Between Firoz Mahmud, Rina Banerjee, Takao Minami and Tomoko Kashiki, the artists' works undulate from sensuous dream-scapes to virtual landscapes and vibrant, dancing allegories.

Firoz Mahmud’s sculpted canvases, stencilled in the manner of Bangladeshi Layapa art, allow for resonant fissures to emerge from traditional South Asian and Hindu mythologies where they intersect with dynastic histories of the Mughal Empire. Further along the subcontinent, the remarkable momentum of Rina Banerjee’s works on paper can be traced to decorative Indian art, interwoven with the artist’s own impressions and fantasies. Takao Minami presents digital visions of Southeast Asia, where he splices and layers his own observations of a trip made to Vietnam and Cambodia. Finally and moving eastward, the imaginings of Tomoko Kashiki open up a world that circulates her women in and out of surreal and quotidian spaces.

Conscious of their nuanced, ever-evolving Asian identities, these artists have progressed far beyond mere representation to shape new and vivid ways of seeing themselves and their region. Ota Fine Arts is pleased to present these works in the gallery’s first group exhibition in Singapore.
