The Chair is a Chair is a Mystery

"Konseki", the idea of ephemeral energy traces is like when someone rises from a chair they leave behind an impression in the chair and the chair becomes the perfect vehicle for this phenomenon. Gakushi Yamamoto and Mai Morita, artists from Kyoto, Japan present to us visual thoughts that might give us new insight to our experience of the world. Gakushi Yamamoto, working in bronze, shows us "konseki" while Mai Morita's mixed media work in ceramic presents the "vague individuality" in our contemporary society from the loss of connection between people and things as we find more and more the internet replacing our need for interaction.

OTA Contemporary continues to present beauty in the poetic expressions of artists today as they see our world changing. In sharing these experiential insights OTA hopes to deepen your visual passions and connections to art.
