Featuring work by two of Japan's leading printmakers: Takahiko Hayashi and Ando Shinji.
Matrix is pleased to announce two of the leading printmakers in Japan; Takahiko Hayashi and Ando Shinji. Takahiko Hayashi is a rising star in Japan. His work has a mystical quality and the titles reflect interest in philosophy as well as natural phenomena. His etchings are composed out of hundreds of detailed lines creating masterfully bold abstractions. Ando Shinji creates highly detailed botanical etchings in which he combines several plates with chine collé to achieve a maximum saturation of color. Shinji custom dyes Gampi paper for maximum control of his overall color scheme. His subjects often emanate out of a soft shadow into subdued light, giving them a sense of wonder, as if seen unexpectedly in their inherent beauty. Exhibition dates: February 7 – 28, 2014 First Friday Reception: February 7, 2014 from 5 to 8PM Gallery hours: Wednesday through Sunday, 10 – 6; Tuesday 10 - 4, Closed Monday
