Sakaizawa Kuniyasu(1972-) has produced oil paintings whose major motif is "cloth" with creases or wimples consisting of many layers of oil colors. In a solo exhibition this time, his fourth at Kamakura Gallery, not only oil paintings will be exhibited but also works drawn by oil on paper as a latest series. Compared with his typical oil paintings covered all over in dark-colored oil that evoke a sense of peace and silence, the works on paper have some simple lines of bright colors that give a sense of rhythmic dancing. "People," the artist says, " might think there is a big difference between oil paintings on canvas and works on paper but basically both works arise from the completely same process." The theory underlying his works is that the structural base is always the same even though the outward appearance of each looks different. The important purpose of his new series is not what has changed rather, he is attempting to express what has been kept. Sakaizawa also has recently been trying his hand at producing oil paintings on canvas using yellow or dark red colors that have not appeared before. Some 20 of his works including oil on canvas, oil on paper and charcoal on paper will be on display.
