Mashimo Yuki creates elaborate works using black ink, featuring flowers, moths and patterns as motifs.
The theme of the work focuses on negative elements like lies told over and over again, ignored and covered-up ugliness, and a moonless, dark night where light does not find its way.
The pieces hint at sensual desires, overflowing with sinister energy as they depict the symbiosis of the erotic and the grotesque in monochrome. This solo exhibition, "Overindulgence" exposes the possibilities inherent in ugly self-driven desire, along with its beauty in an obstinate style of drawing.
During the exhibition, events to draw original flower-style lettering by the artist will beheld.
