With an extensive, diverse and innovative body of works executed over the past thirty years, Shinro Ohtake has clearly positioned himself as one of the most important creative forces in contemporary Japanese art. Ohtake’s oeuvre includes drawing, pasted works, painting, sculpture and photography, as well as experimental music and videos, but the activity of cutting and pasting is clearly his most powerful form of expression. Much of his work utilises found images and scraps discarded from urban culture and the mass media, often with reference to the underground music culture.
Produced to accompany the solo exhibition Shinro Ohtake at Parasol unit, 12 October - 12 December 2014, this limited edition refers to his Time Memory series, which was featured at Parasol unit alongside works from the Retina, Frost and Cell series.
