A solo exhibition by Yutaka Watanabe titled "Soft Construction" is on view at Maki Fine Arts, through April 30, 2017.
This exhibition marks Watanabe's first solo show with Maki Fine Arts. His paintings are known for melding fantastical images with organic forms, wandering the space between abstract and concrete. His new works are stratified; elements of the many color structures gently layered over each other; adding a unique rhythm and tension to his creations. His works have evolved into expressing fantastical spaces that resemble clay, becoming more abstract and perhaps even baroque-esque.
The exhibition is on view at Maki Fine Arts 1F, Kurokawa Bldg, 4 Kaitaicyo, Shinjuku-Ku, Tokyo 162-0802, Japan.
