Guillaume Bottazzi – Gallery Itsutsuji, Tokyo

“Guillaume Bottazzi – Recent paintings” is the artist’s fourth one-person exhibition at the Gallery Itsutsuji. Guillaume Bottazzi works a great deal in the Land of the Rising Sun. His recent works are imbued with his affinity with Japan, which has nourished his art for more than a decade.  His works are composed of intangible elements and ethereal forms. The work’s structure itself becomes the painting. The diffuse lights are in contradiction with each other, suggesting spatial organization and giving his works a feeling of strangeness.
Twelve recent works will be exhibited, including paintings 2.40 metres by 1.90 metres, from fine plaster and glue on fabric, or oil on raw linen canvas.

To date, Guillaume Bottazzi has created more than 40 works in public spaces and receives commissions, some from museums. Is most recent creation in Japan can be seen in Sapporo on all the facades of the Miyanomori International Museum of Art, Sapporo; a 900 m² work that is the largest painting in Japan. The exhibition of works by Guillaume Bottazzi at MIMAS in 2011 contributed to support for the victims of the earthquake and the tsunami and for reconstruction of the affected areas.
