Hiroshi Sato

It is there, amongst the conscious and sub-conscious traces of his figures, that the young Japanese artist Hiroshi Sato can be found. He explores the long shadows of dawn and dusk, and the meandering paths of our dreams, concentrating on just two colours: red and blue. To him, these two colours symbolise the conscious and subconscious spheres, realms that are separate from one another yet eternally bound. Whether awake, asleep, or dreaming, each state has its own colour. The essence of the characters is revealed through shades of colour that emerge to fill the space around them. The enigmatic portraits of women create the impression they have been put together in the style of a kaleidoscope. The geometric shapes and graphic shadows surrounding the female subjects resemble the coloured fragments in kaleidoscopic images with their light, almost white, borders. By deliberately combining graphic and symbolic techniques, Sato is following in the footsteps of American artist Chuck Close, as well as artists Jan Vermeer, Andrew Wyth, and Euan Uglow. Even when thy capture a dynamic movement, or time itself appears to stand still, his images are remarkably harmonious. They are poetic snapshots of a picturesque quest for consciousness, a search conducted in colour and shape.
