Furukawa and Yamaguchi both studied painting at Hiroshima City University and its graduate school, and will complete their master's degree this spring. Through an exhibition of small works and drawings, they will look back on the transition of their six years of study of painting in Hiroshima.

Furukawa creates works that depict signs of existence and anonymous stories with a light touch. In his recent works, he has been developing a series of paintings that he creates using as a clue a text written by a third party that has been cut up and reconstructed.

Yamaguchi continues to work on the "Age of Myth" series, which depicts "what it means to be human" for machines to have intelligence.

The title of the exhibit, "Inch by Inch," is taken from a picture book by Leo Leoni (Japanese title: "Hitoashi Hitoashi" (translated by Shuntaro Tanikawa)). The exhibition traces the process of production activities in Hiroshima, which the two artists, both of whom were never anything at all, have been engaged in, and the footsteps that led them to expand the scope of their activities.
