Tsurutaro Kataoka Exhibition
17 September – 18 October 2015
Tsurutaro Kataoka, age 60, is a successful artist of many hats: TV comedian, actor, professional boxer, and now Japanese-style painter for twenty years, as well as calligrapher, ceramic and glass artist. In this exhibition his works are infused with new breath in collaboration with WOW, visual design studio (Tokyo, Sendai and London), using Panasonic’s Space Player (ambient lighting video projector) and other high-tech 4k projectors. The result is a brand new art of Japanese-style painting that touches your heart, opening up your senses and imagination to experience the nostalgic beauty of four seasons in Japan.
So listen to the falling of snow flakes, feel the water rippling as a gold fish moves and watch flower petals of tsubaki (Japanese camellia) gently unfolding. Above all, witness the quietude surrounding the original paintings when the projection stops.
