“Dark Forest” Keita SUGIURA
Sat.10 January – Sat.31 January 2009
Opening reception : Sat.10 January 18:00-20:00
We believe you are making a good start with the beginning of a new year. Today we announce that CASHI is going to hold a solo exhibition by Keita Sugiura, titled “Dark Forest,” from January 10th to 31th.
Sugiura is a promising young photographer who won the Victor Pincheck award at GEISAI MUSEUM#2 and the bronze prize at GEISAI#11 in autumn 2008. His works printed on large-sized mat sheets have sharpness and delicacy and their distinctive darkness, that cannot be expressed with a glossy C-print, is impressive.
“Forests,” his series of pictures of dusky woods, taken immediately before night falls, is filled with a subtle warmth. Looking at the photos capturing aspects of dark, tranquil, cold woods, you might find moist, thick air of the forests surrounding you.
We will present a sharp, sensitive exhibition by realigning the forest series shown at GEISAI MUSEUM#2 and adding large-sized prints to it. It will provide the sharpness of a winter nippy air.
Sugiura will visit the gallery to attend the reception party on the first day. It is our regret not to deliver this invitation sooner but we hope you will come and see the works and let others know about the exhibition.
