Gallery Recolte has done it again, putting together an exciting group show from artists all over Japan. I'm excited to have been chosen to be in the show again this year, with 2 brand new cut paper pieces on the walls. In fact, if you squint really, really hard, you might be able to make them out in the photo below.
What's more,the Voting is back too! This is a competition, after all. The best part? It's a competition that is open to the public.
One of the more interesting parts of the vote is that you, the audience, is asked for both your favorite and least favorite artwork. I know it sounds negative, but after a chat with the gallery owner, it turns out that it isn't. The gallery is interested in strong emotional reactions to the artwork, regardless of whether the viewer was attracted or repulsed. So, in a way, a negative reaction is also a positive reaction. Positive reactions remain positive, which is nice too.
If you are in Fukuoka, you can see the work live at the gallery.
Vote by clicking the purple button. English and Japanese are both fine.
