Combining canvases made of different media (hemp, linen, cotton etc), applying shadowing effects and depicting (by oil, acrylic, alkyd) dynamic elements that transfix the multiple planes Ogawa weaves a figure that can't be read through linear, diachronic structure. His image doesn't offer you one entrance. The painting is a knot-like organization which can be perceived only in the mode of synchronicity, while enveloping the totality of the visual semiotic organism and coming simultaneously from different directions to its ungraspable centre. On Friday, December 16 Frantic Gallery presents these Borromean Rings-like works by Haruki Ogawa and invite you to wrap it up by your mind using more than one tentacles of your perception at a time.
