The nature of light and dark is plumblessly mystical and fabulous at the same time. Art inspired by this phenomenon is no less impressive. It incarnates the other world, the realm of past memories, where a real viewer is just a guest from above. This is exactly what happens at a new art exhibition of Masayoshi Nojo at JD Malat Gallery, titled “Under the Moonlight.”
Masayoshi Nojo is a Japanese artist born in 1989 in Kanagawa. In 2015, he completed his M.A. in Japanese Paintings at the Kyoto University of Art and Design. Being an eager explorer of Japanese art history, the young artist has managed to develop an unexampled style that comprises both ancient and modern art techniques. Masayoshi Nojo is a real trailblazer, who fastens reality and the past in one entity.
‘Mirage’: art exhibition where you can touch the past
‘Under the Moonlight’ is Masayoshi Nojo’s first solo show outside Japan. This art exhibition has already made a name for itself and become the place of exemplary art in London. Featuring a new series of Nojo’s multi-layered works made with silver and aluminum foils, entitled “Mirage,” it is entirely focused on the themes of memory and the past, exploring the passage of time.
Each piece is a great complexity of layers, hence the effect of mirage that appears while exploring Nojo’s works. Once you look at any of them, you may think that it is something close and kindred to your soul. The play of dimness and lightness makes you immerse into the painting as if you are standing under the moonlight and taking in the sceneries.
Masayoshi Nojo’s solo exhibition runs at JD Malat Gallery in London through February 15, 2020. The time is almost up, so do not miss your chance to peep at the memories ‘under the moonlight’!
