Exhibition Information
Ryota Nojima: Culture Day, the Paintings put on Hold
November 2–December 3
While Nojima paints figures, animals, and landscapes with a light-colored, manga-like touch, he simultaneously creates highly abstract works. Unafraid to showcase a variety of styles, the artist pursues a unique world of expression that is not bound by formality. He creates drawings of everyday occurrences and events as if they were his daily routine and uses them as starting points for his paintings. For Nojima, painting is a manifestation of the realism and reality that accumulates through the process of responding to the canvas with fragmented memories of sensations. Various elements, such as the title, the shape, the brushstrokes, and the colors, encourage the viewer to create their own stories and interpretations, leading to rich visual experiences of the paintings.
