Katsumi Hayakawa
Katsumi Hayakawa, Distorting Soup, Mixed Media Painting on Wood Panel, 2019


Price Upon Request


In rendering optical phenomena, Hayakawa considers this pursuit an exploration of the physics of light itself. His influences include J.M.W. Turner and Paul Cézanne who set out to be painters of light using landscape as their vehicle. The early 20th century brought even more explorations of non-traditional subject matter to the table: Impressionism and atmospheric qualities of light, Futurism and motion, Fauvism and color. Just as the Futurists explored movement at the turn of the century, the kinetic effect found in Hayakawa’s works reflect movements of the body through space. Light, here, is used to mirror the subjectivity of the viewer back to themselves and to deepen Hayakawa’s own exploration of his long-lasting concerns: density of life in the modern urban age, our range of abilities to perceive busy visual fields, and abstraction at large.
