Solo show : Guillaume Bottazzi in Tokyo, May 2019

March 20, 2019 Destination North Asia No Comments Email Email

The Gallery Itsutsuji is pleased to invite you to the 5th one-person exhibition by the artist Guillaume Bottazzi from 17 May to 22 June 2019. The colours of the exhibition “Japan, my love” are sober, with cobalt blue and turquoise on beige and white mediums. Ten recent oil paintings on raw linen canvas 146cm x 97cm are shown in the gallery, together with two backlit installations on aircraft canvas and an installation on Japanese rice paper.

“I find my own rhythm when I’m painting, in harmony with the elements around me and with the beating of my heart. My senses and my mind are in harmony, art is sublimation. My work has continued to evolve, inspired by the Land of the Rising Sun. I’ve done away with my shapes, I’ve removed layers of paint, I’ve removed the primer protecting the canvas. I just wanted natural linen”. Guillaume Bottazzi Eric Kandel*, winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, proves that abstract art is the essence of art, that it creates more profound cognitive activity than figurative art. “Abstract art that strips away real life requires active problem-solving. We instinctively look for patterns, recognizable shapes, formal figures within the abstraction. It makes our brains work in a different, harder, way at a subconscious level.” (See: “Reductionism in art and brain science”). Experiments** have shown that if the observer likes the work he hears or is looking at, his cognitive activity will be much richer than if he or she doesn’t like it. A scientific study*** carried out by the neuroscientist Helmut Leder, called «Curved art in the real world – A psychological look at the art of Guillaume Bottazzi» proves that his work tends to reduce the observer’s anxiety and encourage activity in the brain’s pleasure areas.
