Tanaka Kyokusho
June 30-August 12, 2023

Tanaka holds himself to a high standard of process and vision and takes the time before each piece to compose and experiment with shape, colors, and the widths and spacings of the bamboo strips. This leads to a series of drafts, executed through technical sketches and physical samples to evaluate the aesthetic outcomes of these variables.  This show marks Tanaka’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.
