2016年の最初の展示を飾るのは現在NY、ブルックリンにて活動する1984年生まれ東京都出身の画家、山口歴。

 

ブラシストロークを独立させ作成し、キャンバスにコラージュする独自のスタイルとともに、ACE HOTEL NY、Kinfolk 94や+81 gallery NY、東京のHidari Zingaroなどで展示を行うほか、STUSSYやALIFE、CHARI&COはじめとするUSストリート・カルチャーの代表的ブランドとコラボレーション商品を発表、2015年は香港のタイムズスクエア、SOGO HONGKONGの30周年記念アーティストに選出され30mのビルボードを飾るなど活動の幅を広げている。日本初個展となる今回の展示は、より純粋にストロークに焦点を当て、キャンバスという既成の枠組みを超越し、進化させた”OUT OF BOUND”シリーズの最新作を発表。

 

会場では、今回初展示される新作を含む、これまでの作品を振り返った初のジンも発売されます。

 

HHH gallery will reopen for the first time in half a year! We are extremely proud to announce our first exhibition of 2016, “UNKNOWN SCORCHER” by Meguru Yamaguchi. Meguru is a NY-based Japanese artist and this will be his first solo exhibition in Japan. In his latest series called OUT OF BOUND, Meguru is much more focused on brushstroke, and he transcends and evolves the existing framework of canvas.

 

Through the technique of what he calls “Cut & Paste,” Yamaguchi achieves a uniquely chaotic, vibrantly intense and visually robust abstraction on various surfaces. The method entails laying out paints on plastic sheets to dry, then peeling it off and pasting them onto another surface as if collaging to create shapeless shapes and formless forms.
He has been collaborating with US brands such as Stussy, FTC, ALIFE, and Chari&Co NYC. He has previously participated in numerous exhibitions including shows at Kinfolk 94, +81 gallery in NY, Ace Hotel NY and Hidari Zingaro in Tokyo.

 

The new zine compiled the new and old Yamaguchi’s works will be available during the exhibition at HHH gallery.
