If it is the first time you see the artworks of Keisei Kobayashi, you may be surprised to know they were created by wood print. The extremely minute depiction goes beyond the general idea of a wood print.
〈Wood Engraving〉The technique invented in the late 18th century which cut tough wood in round slices (cross-section) and curve it by a burin and a chisel to make further elaborate and exquisite expressions. Although I understand the explanation in my head, the artwork in front of my eyes does not stop surprising and making me stare in every corner of the world that is both decadent and paradisiacal.
Betraying the common knowledge that wood engraving is confined within small size, his artworks reach the maximum of 3M which was enabled by trial and error to enlarge the technique succeeded since the 1700s.
This exhibition will display self-selected artworks looking back at his art practices. The display configuration including large artworks will be worth seeing. It is great pleasure that we can hold a display to show the whole picture of Keisei Kobayashi's artworks in here at Fukuoka. You will not regret coming.
Keisei KOBAYASHI/Born in Shimane Prefecture in 1944, lives in Tokyo. A professor emeritus at Tama Art University.
