Tezukayama Gallery is excited to present “Dialogue”, a group exhibition by Keisuke Jinba, Daisuke Abe and Bertrand Planes.
The three directors of Tezukayama Gallery, each enthusiastically selected these three artists who are dierent in age, nationality and expression methods. The approach and concept for each artist’s work is dierent, however one common thing stands out, that is that they face the question of “what is the value of things?” and create artwork with a strong presence. With a gurative dialogue these three young artists convey an awareness of real values in our chaotic information overloaded society.

Always, with a perhaps media agnostic approach to his work, Jinba expresses his physical experiences and feelings through paintings, sculptures and also photographs. In this exhibition, we will mainly showcase his painting work.
As an example of his work, Jinba draws a particular favorite item such as a pair of glasses, a notebook or even a belt and then proceeds to cover this drawing with a transparent surface. At a rst glance it might look like a at printed image but it will no doubt evoke various visual experiences and maybe even questioning the painting itself.
