Asakura Kouhei

Shared Lines: Wellington 2017, Shared Lines: Kaikōura 2019 exhibiting artist


b. 1983 in Miyagi


Communion with Nature in a grand scale, Asakura Kouhei depicts all things alive and still by interweaving pieces and particles of colourful substances. A single particle, the stuff of all things, travels around, meeting others, fusing, and forever changing, to become a part of the earth and its inhabitants. The moist from your breath, in that sense, may reach the wind, turn to snow, and melt into a brook where a wild bear relieves its thirst. Here begins the voyage called the circle of life”. I hope you realize that we are all connected with nature through my works in which you might be able to meet me who once was a part of you.
