Gallery Show: 妖し展 [Ayashi Exhibition] @ Arts Rush, Daikanyama

The Japanese / English dictionary I use defines 妖し [Ayashi] precisely in the following way:

attractive, bewitching, calamity

I cannot think of a better description for art, and the process of making art. Both the act and the result seem to be charming chaos (verb/noun) to create charming chaos (adjective/noun). Attempts to impose order, logic, or structure are all so much fairy dust and illusion.

It is fortuitous then, that such artwork is perfect for Arts Rush's 妖し展 [Ayashi Exhibition], opening this Wednesday the 13th of August. I'm thrilled to have been invited back for my second group show at Arts Rush (Neiro was the first). 8 artists in total will be showing a wide variety of strange, ominous, and beguiling artwork in a variety of mediums and techniques. I'm confident that the exhibition will be mysteriously amazing (or amazingly mysterious!).

Suspiciously, I shall not be in attendance this time. I hope that you will be, though, to witness the weirdness and beauty for your self.
