In Hiraku Suzuki's practice, drawing is expanded from a primitive method of expression into a contemporary technique of reflection and transformation. Associating the act of drawing with the process of âexcavation' reveals memories and unknowns present within our daily life. He perceives paper surfaces as excavation sites, carefully inscribing the moment when the different dimensions of time and space are generated from a limited two-dimensional phase. His recent drawings, in which he repeatedly uses light reflective materials such as silver marker and spray paint, shift their visibility according to the viewers' perspective, creating resonance with the immediate environment.
In this exhibition Excavated Reverberations, Hiraku Suzuki presents his recent approaches to drawing through several series of works on paper applying different methods. He has a constant interest in the genesis of letters and symbols, which leads him to explore alternative universal languages, whilst being closely related to familiar environments and materials in today's world.
The artist will be introduced by Professor Chris Wainwright, Head of Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges.
