Seko Toru (瀬古徹展) Exhibition at Ai Gallery (藍ギャラリー)

This exhibition (2010/11/15-20) by Seko Toru (瀬古徹展) at Ai Gallery (藍ギャラリー) consists of a series of shapes (one shown on the promotional card) offset from the wall, producing a subtle three-dimensional effect.  Looking closely at one (and reading the card), it turns out that they are thin boards wrapped in canvas and then painted with oil paints.

This exhibition requires stopping for a minute and taking a good look - long enough to perceive the shape, the 3D-effect, and the faint shadows cast on the wall. この展示会の理解は何秒間(一瞬より長く)がかかる。まず, 非常にシンプルに見えるが, よく見ると、作品の形、三次元な感じと壁の影を気がつく。
