SH GALLERY is going to present Ryo Koizumi’s solo exhibition “LUMINOUS”.
In the “LUMINOUS” exhibition, Ryo Koizumi will present new paintings and drawings from his “Halo” series, which he created as paintings that symbolize light.

Koizumi has been working as a calligrapher since 2016, and in 2019 he developed his “enso” series of paintings, in which the basic lines of calligraphy are drawn continuously in a circular pattern.
By repeating a primitive symbol over and over again, Koizumi seems to show our sense of the world in which abstraction and concrete become unclear.

Koizumi began working on the “Halo” series in 2021.
“Halo” series embraced the contingency of color, making the pure visual image of light seen in the aerial exist on the canvas as an abstract painting.
The “Halo” series expresses a new level of Koizumi’s work that is full of the power of light, while hiding the oriental mystique inherited from the “enso” series.

“I interact with my work, building up the paint over and over again.
Then I express light through painting, through the elements of regularity, contingency, and color.
I hope that by coming face to face with my work, you will be able to feel its power to work on your emotions.”
( Comments from Ryo Koizumi’s “LUMINOUS” exhibition )

Koizumi seems to be trying to convey power and warmth to people by trapping light in his paintings. As a former gardener, Koizumi’s works have a unique oriental character with a strong abstract expression.
He is also active as a calligrapher, working on the title of the 2018 NHK Taiga Drama “Segodon”.

This exhibition “LUMINOUS” is Koizumi’s first solo show at SH GALLERY.
We look forward to seeing you at the exhibition.
