CLEAR EDITION & GALLERY proudly presents, a solo show by Wataru Komachi ,divided into two parts during the two months exhibition period.
Komachi 's works consist of a variety of symbols and elements from music and fashion design industry, so that audience can easily find their mind connections with the artwork, and the artist can convey his distinct perspective in responding to the modern society. There is also a sense of humor addressed by quipping cynicism that builds up an ample expression in his work. Fundamentally, the performance of his work did not fall under the influence of popular art. Supporters of Wataru Komachi especially stand by the naive creativity and sensibility consistently seen in his artwork.
In this two-part exhibition, the artworks are separated by the dialogs and transformation between art, fashion, photography, interior design and many different genres that Komachi experienced. Furthermore, artworks are re-compiled by various aspects into a series of curation, which makes this exhibition even more special and hard to come by.
Part 01, entitled “I Don’t Want To Grow UP”, are installations from his early fashion design and painting works that transform his early intentions into real action.
Part 02, entitled “Just Like Heaven”, mainly focus on his furniture design and screen print works, where the artist turns his imagining "Paradise/Heaven" created by the chaos of modern world into substance.
Limited merchandises produced especially for this exhibition will be available on-site.
According to two different parts of topics and statements brought by the artist, how will he perform the comparison between two emotion and sceneries, and make the overall connection?
