Makoto Ofune7 February – 24 April 2020
This catalogue accompanies Makoto Ofune's second solo exhibition at Olivier Malingue.
The exhibition presents Ofune's most recent body of work, produced over the last three years, continuing three main series in his practice: Void, Wave and Reflection Field.
The works on view combine traditional Japanese painting techniques with an abstract vocabulary, revealing the artist's quest for eternity and harmony. By creating an atmosphere that invites meditation and awareness, Ofune encourages the viewer to consider his works as elements able to transcend their status of objects and project multiple and different spatial dimensions.
This catalogue is available to purchase from the gallery for £25.
