Perrotin‘s Paris flagship is playing host to a new body of work by the acclaimed Japanese artist, Izumi Kato. As his third solo show with the gallery, the eponymously named event comprises of assemblage sculptures, as well as paintings of his enigmatic characters.
Sometimes disturbing, other-times enchanting, Kato echoes a spiritual world through his largely primitive markings, harking to revered Japanese painters, such as Kawanabe Kyosai and Utagawa Kuniyoshi. Like ancient cave art, Kato creates his featureless characters through a combination of intuition and a presence of mind of his home nation’s long history of spirituality — from Buddhism to Shintoism.
