Nakagawa Hirotaka (中川裕孝) Exhibit "One Sunday" at Gallery Kobo (巷房2) - (2010/05)

I walked into the B1 exhibition space for Gallery Kobo (巷房2) and idly contemplated the pictures there, by Nakagawa Hirotaka (中川裕孝), thinking they were paintings.  Then the artist walked out of a back room and explained they were all made from denim....

Walking up and taking a closer look, I discovered - with surprise - that this was indeed the case.  He explained that he collected a lot of old jeans and then used the different colors of the material - without dyeing any of it.
