As the world becomes more globalized today, 
we believe there is a need to renovate the raison d’être and value of visual art. 
MYD Gallery provides the axes of time and space to exhibit artwork, 
mainly photo art that expresses the marks of time etched into space, as scenery.
Enjoy the experience of witnessing another world materialize in the white cube.

MYD では時間と空間という座標軸をキュレーション指針として定め


Woodblock prints, namely the ukiyo-e, are recognized as one of the traditional arts of Japan. But the artwork by the woodblock print artist Katsutoshi Yuasa are an absolute, clear departure from conventional prints. Using photography and cutting-edge digital technology, he inserts the carving process of printmaking in the final stage of his work before completing his pieces. His work expresses “the signs left by time spent in thought,” seemingly running counter to time and era, and conveys the gravity of what is being lost today with a visceral impact similar to pain. This exhibition “space wind scenery” is a fine selection of the artist’s choice of different series, examining the true essence of the era inherent to the 21st century.

浮世絵を始め、日本の伝統芸術ひとつとして認知される木版画。 しかし、木版画作家、湯浅克俊の作品はそれらと圧倒的に一線を画するものです。 写真と最新デジタル技術を駆使し、最終段階で木版画の制作工程、“彫る”を挿しこみ、 作品を摺り上げる。湯浅の、時代と時間を遡行するかのような「思考の時間の痕跡」は、 私たちに現代という時代が喪失しようとしている“コトの重大さ”を痛みにも似た身体 感触で訴えかけてきます。今回の展覧会『宙・風・景』では、作家本人が選んだ異なる シリーズから作品を厳選し、21 世紀が内包する時代の本質に向き合いたいと思います。 

Katsutoshi YUASA
Born in 1978, Katsutoshi Yuasa graduated from Musashino Art University, majoring in printmaking. Moving his base to the United Kingdom, he completed a master’s degree at the Royal College of Art, London, in 2005, and has been engaged in activities mainly abroad. With extensive experience of solo exhibitions in Europe and North America, he has also participated in several internationally renowned art fairs. His work may seem like photographs at first glance, but they are all hand-carved prints, based on photographs taken by the artist. The shadows and light are expressed by the depth and width of the carving, and this outstanding skill allows viewers to even feel the actual atmosphere of the subject matter, with images similar to an intimate memory or an afterimage. His constant pursuit of ways to gain a contemporary view into Japanese woodblock prints, starting from the ukiyo-e, and to take them into the future is reflected in his work.
