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.

古川と山口はともに広島市立大学と同大学院で絵画を学び、この春博士前期課程を修了します。広島で絵画を学んだ6年間の変遷を、小作品とドローイングの展示を通じて振り返ります。

古川は、存在の気配や匿名の物語を淡いタッチで描く作品を制作。近作では第三者が書いた文章を切り刻み、再構成した文章を手がかりに制作する絵画シリーズを展開しています。

山口は、知性を持った機械のために「人間とは何か」を描いた「神話の時代シリーズ」を継続的に手掛けています。

展示タイトルの “Inch by Inch” は、レオ・レオニの絵本(邦題:「ひとあしひとあし」(谷川俊太郎 訳))から引用したもの。何者でもなかった2人が愚直に積み重ねた広島での制作活動の過程と、活躍の幅を広げていくに至る足跡をたどります。
