Presented for the first time in Italy from AplusB in Brescia with a solo exhibition titled Maze Haze, Osamu Kobayashi finds in the form of representation his basis of pictorial research. But which is the representation that the artist wants to talk about? And for what reason in a historical context in which artistic forms of representation are quite marginal compared to socio-anthropological forms motivating the work of arts? Due to this displacement from the container to the content, Osamu Kobayashi set the goal of his artistic research on the subject of art itself.
Osamu Kobayashi answers to questions with a production of visual patterns linked to a neo-perspective that appears or is denied, which is shaped or just perceived. The artist uses colour, design and texture: three primary elements from which arises the conflict between duality and, consequently, tensions, displacements and accelerations. Each work contains the highlights of a clash that the viewer solves thanks to his sensitivity and experiencing the piece in its texture and in its presence.
Material becomes idea, a discovery for the artist and for the viewer as well. The involvement is among the purposes of Osamu’s works, and for this reason they always are so eye-catching and melodic. Within them there is the maze that is the topic of the exhibition: a labyrinth of ideas that turns into haze, or rather in the difficulty with identifying that horizon that seems so easily stated in the original form.
