MASAE UEZUMI ---Paris & Provence---

28th October(Tue.) - 2nd November 2008(Sun.)

Masae Uezumi's recent work with its strong contours, and exquisitely hallucinatory handling of vermillion, rose and purple suggests a unity of vision, a world made whole. Yet it is also clear that we are being taken in by a field of projection (a vision of search, let us say) rather than by vision itself (that is, opticality). The artist's restless exploration is amplified by the spectral flush her compositions suggestive of a reality that is always in flux within a flow of duration. If there is any constant to any of this, the artist seems to be intimating, it is to be intuited by each individual.
