Gallery Reception: Meishu Fukamachi

After decades working behind the scenes of Tokyo’s boutique fashion scene, Meishu Fukamachi had had enough.

At 46 years old, he left behind the world of fashion design for his own personal pursuit: cut-paper collage.

“I wanted to live on my talents alone,” the Kyushu native says of his choice 20 years ago.

In accreted layers comprised of thousands of colored strips, Fukamachi builds up scenes of nearly infinite texture.

Whether he depicts the sun rising over a Brazilian favela ghetto or a lone candle burning against a seemingly flat black background, the closer you inspect the works of Fukamachi’s exhibition running through June 10, the more there is to see.
