TEZUKAYAMA GALLERY is pleased to present Dominique Lutringer’s second solo exhibition.
Japan based French artist, Lutringer was born and grew up in France, of a German father and French mother. He developed an interest in Japanese culture from an early age and moved to Japan in 1992. Lutringer has worked with various painting styles but now focus on minimalist paintings showcasing his unique view of Japanese aesthetics.
In this exhibition, we would like to show the latest delicate drawings that make up approximately 20 works.
The colours used on the works were toned down compared with the previous exhibition held at TEZUKAYAMA GALLERY in 2014, and are now all monochrome created only with pencil on paper.
This simple medium, colours and composition may appear subdued but his work has a deep warm expression of nature and of the mundane.
We hope the visitor feels his work demonstrates a well honed sense of beauty inspired and characterized by Japanese aesthetics, themselves drawn from nature and the simplicity of the mundane.
