Yasuaki Onishi – vertical emptiness

The Osaka-based artist Yasuaki Onishi recently completed an installation at Kyoto Art Center, a former Elementary school turned art gallery. Tree branches hang from the ceiling upside down. Draped from them are hot glue and crystallized urea compounds that extend down to the ground, creating a dense forest, frozen in time, that connects our ground to an imaginary world. Standing behind the branches is a large, black panel made from black glue and graphite. It stands in stark contrast to the vertical emptiness in front of it.

Interestingly, Onishi’s current installation in itself is a stark contrast to his previous work. Typically, the artist has used hot black glue to drape plastic sheeting to create spatial forms that are at once monumental and voluminous yet airy.

Onishi will also be participating in Rokko Meets Art, an outdoor art exhibition that we’ll be highlighting next week.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her mind
    that how a user can understand it. So that’s why this paragraph is great.
