Continuous Contours：Maki Ohkojima,Hideo Takashima,Yohei Fusegi,Hiroko Masuko
Here are four artists using different media and techniques to investigate relationships between people and the environment. Maki Ohkojima echoes nature with the theme forest = body, painting images on various physical supports. Hideo Takashima explored the materiality of fantastical forms derived from daily-use earthenware pots with traditional ceramic paintwork. Yohei Fusegi multiplies fields of threads in needlework, seeming to form the territories and smells of human life. Masuko Hiroko traveled around Tohoku making line drawings on canvas to evoke natural forms growing in vessels.
The contours of nature and of human life are always amorphous. They repeatedly expand, discontinue, and fuse. In this era of changing value systems with a certain distance between us and our subject matter, how can we grasp outlines? That is to say, how can we grasp those points of contact between inside and out? These four artists rely on tactile sensations to push beyond the personal sensory realm, as they search for Continuous Contours of the territories to which they belong.
