White bear / 1PM, 2021, 91 x 65.2 cm, acrylic on canvas


We are pleased to announce Satoru KOIZUMI's solo exhibition "Spectral" at MEGUMI OGITA GALLERY. He completed his postgraduate studies in sculpture at Okinawa Prefectural University of Arts in 2009 and now lives and works in Okinawa. His works are the harmonious combination of animals, both fierce and vulnerable, living in natural habitats, and human beings living in society. Along with a number of exhibitions in Japan and abroad, he has collaborated with Disney on their official projects.


KOIZUMI, who has carved figures from wood, embarks on a new journey to explore more abstraction this time. He began painting in order to embody the "atmosphere" that exists around us, sometimes reassuring, other times frightening. This is an adventure into the painting world, where we see expressive freedom of ambiguity, invisibility or uncertainty, but also two-dimensional constraints. On a subtle pastel background, the white bear and the boy, a familiar motif in his sculpture, evoke a vision that appears and soon disappears.


The word "spectral" comes from "spectrum", which refers to the way light waves are broken down into components and made visible. In this exhibition, KOIZUMI challenges the spectrum of art, from materials and motifs to messages inherent in works, and presents a unique perspective on the diverse society that emerges from them. The exhibition’s name also has a different meaning: "ghostly", symbolising his ability to give multiple interpretations to a single object. This is the first painting exhibition by KOIZUMI, who continues to expand the scope of his activities as a contemporary artist.
