Tsutomu IKEDA "Ontology"

2016 12/2(Fri)-12/24(Sat)

Gallery Naruyama is pleased to present a solo show of an emerging painter Tsutomu IKEDA.

“Ontology”is a philosophical terminology. He is trying to analyze aspects of himself by painting.

"I try to get the presence and the core of myself by gathering fragments as clue. Myself is a very intimate motif however it is a fascinating illusion. Since I’m acting someone’s life in my daily life, I want to express the essence of presence and beauty of myself without a mask. Others have different virtual images about me from the one I have. Both might be a real and a virtual at the time.                    Tsutomu Ikeda "
