There are always "words" on the basis of the artwork of Shin Kamikawa. He habitually takes notes of "words" that popped into his head. He makes the "shapes" based on those "words" that become the titles of his works. Similarly, the process of making "shapes" is more like creating three dimensional works than making paintings. He paints imaginary structure on a soil-colored canvas in a similar way to constructing immense architecture on the ground. In the process underlie a concept of visualizing the structure of the society that he feels as he lives.
Enjoy the overwhelmingly powerful world of Shin KAMIKAWA including "THE WALL" series which was created through reconsideration of his hometown. It is the first exhibition in Tokyo in the last three years.
