Following exhibitions in Hong Kong, Paris and New York, Perrotin is delighted to present Izumi Kato’s first solo exhibition in Seoul, which further builds upon the Japanese artist’s recent experiments exploring stone as a new medium. Since the late 1990s, Kato has been creating an evolving dialogue. With painting as a departure point, the artist began to incorporate wood sculptures in 2003 and soft vinyl sculptures in 2012 into his art practice. Kato’s signature forms, reminiscent of his childhood drawings, include anonymous silhouettes and sometimes androgynous creatures with elongated limbs in impossible poses. These are the results of the artist’s mastery of technique, using his hands to directly apply pigment to canvas to create his otherworldly, anthropomorphized works.
