SHINJI IHARA: 1111
Shinji Ihara’s latest solo exhibition, “1111,” features a series of 22 paintings the artist began making on November 11, 2022—the day his cat, with whom he lived for many years, passed away. Entitled Lay Flowers, the paintings depict flowers and catnip held gently in the artist’s hands. In each work, Ihara renders the scene with precise brush strokes, as if he were placing minute gems one by one on the canvas.
