ARTDYNE is pleased to announce “Shuttle Run 2022,” a solo exhibition of Ayako Ishiba from April 22 (Friday) to May 8 (Sunday), 2022.

Ishiba was born in Hyogo, Japan in 1991, and graduated from Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music in 2016 in the field of oil painting and printmaking. 2019 “Aichi Triennale: The Age of Emotion”, “LUMIX MEETS BEYOND2020 BY JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHERS #7 (Tokyo, Japan) (Amsterdam, Paris). She is one of the artists who have been attracting more and more attention in recent years, winning the Encouragement Award at “VOCA2019 – New Artists of the Plane”.

Especially in Her recent “2.5” series, she presents unique works focusing on the space between two and three dimensions by using black lines drawn with a pen on the surface of an object as a subject. The sense of discomfort that emerges from the works in this series questions our very act of “seeing” and shakes our sense of values that we live our lives according to existing rules and positions.

This exhibition takes a step forward from the “2.5” series and is named “Shuttle Run” from the image of a round trip of thoughts and techniques, and a renewal from the past to the future. The exhibition consists of works that incorporate illusions and visual play, a departure from the snapshots of the past. In addition to composing and photographing the awkward lengths of paper as motifs as before, her further interest is directed toward mass, and expands.

We hope you will take this opportunity to view and appreciate the development of Ayako Ishiba’s new works.
