【城ヶ崎悟個展 かたちに寄せて】

誰もがそれと解る「かたち」にイメージを無限に膨らませることができる線やトーンを織り込むことによって、対話のできる「構図」となるよう願っています。                              ―城ヶ崎悟

Esther Okada Art Gallery is pleased to present for the first time Satoru Jogasaki with his new series of oil paintings. Jogasaki’s approach to paintings stems from Cubism and Constructivism but he develops these ideas in his own way. His motifs, which are often deliberately simplified and contain a sense of humor and warmness, may at first give viewers an impression of Naïve Arts. He is highly talented in simplifying objects and also skilled at its composition. When viewers approach the painting, they will be drawn into the deepness and complexity of its matière and they will be force to look deeply into the tableau in a very natural manner. His works let us pause for a moment and look attentively. This act will remind us of the fundamental joy we have when we appreciate artworks. We hope you enjoy the exhibition of his latest series of works. 



 “I depict familiar shapes using some lines and color tones, which allow viewers to stretch the image infinitely in their mind, and wish that the composition will be interactive.”                                               -Satoru Jogasaki
