Ikeshima Kosuke      Fragment

November 26 (Mon) – December 22 (Sat) 2018

Gallery Naruyama is pleased to present Kosuke IKESHIMA’s solo show “Fragment”
Ikeshima brings in traditional BUSSHI techniques such as not using a file, as a result his sculptures give natural luster of woods.

“In the past I have created a sculputure inspired by a moth. I’m neither a big fan nor feel attached. By using a moth as motif, I expressed my idea of the impermanence of worldly things and a contradiction between life and death. In biological classification there is no difference between them. However they make very different impressions,I guess this is why I found some sympathy for a moth.” Kosuke Ikeshima

In this exhibition Ikeshima focus on mysterious beauties of a moth and related works. Please enjoy Ikeshima’s world created by a fusion of traditional technique and contemporary philosophy.
