Surface Tension -  - Chippendale - NSW
Bridging calligraphy with the unleashed expressive gesture of performance, and merging formal drawing and painting with the influence of graffiti and mural painting, this exhibition showcases four contemporary Japanese artists with new approaches to the drawn surface. Dante Horoiwa’s delicately controlled and intimate pencil drawings share an introspective energy with Yusk Imai’s surreal painted abstractions and landscape. With vigorous mark-making, Jun Inoue’s live painting and works on canvas and Hiroyasu Tsuri/TWOONE’s new style of lightbox paintings maintain the energy of the artists’ backgrounds in street art within a fine art practice. Curated by The Japan Foundation, Sydney & Backwoods Gallery. Presented by The Japan Foundation, Sydney, supported by Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne.
