HIDEYUKI SOBUE
'Recollection'
 2 - 30 June 2020


 

 

Hideyuki Sobue was born in 1965 in Aichi, Japan, and grew up in an orphanage. He graduated from Osaka University of Arts on a scholarship. Sobue has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and Japan. Notable exhibitions include "Conversation with Ruskin", celebrating the bicentenary of John Ruskin's birth, supported by Arts Council England (The Blue Gallery, Brantwood, Coniston/ The Ruskin Museum, Library and Research Centre, Lancaster University, Lancaster); "Wordsworth and Basho: Walking Poets" (Itami City Museum Kakimori Bunko, Japan); "I Wandered...", commemorating the 200th anniversary of the final publication of William Wordsworth's poem "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" (Rydal Mount & Gardens, Ambleside); "The Way I See" supported by Arts Council England (Japan House Gallery, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, London); the Royal Scottish Academy Open (RSA Lower Gallery, Edinburgh), etc.

"I have created and developed a brush hatching technique using acrylic and Japanese sumi ink. This was initially inspired by the classic method of "disegno", based on drawing, established in Florentine school in Renaissance. Technically I have enhanced the concept by combining it with the latest neurological studies, which reveal that the human visual brain perceives objects by oriented lines predominantly. This evidence might show the difference between painting and letters, long hidden in the prehistoric age. In my practice, I attempt to gather the threads of "narrative" in creating textures of the ever-changing present moment, embodying semiotic images of our time." - Hideyuki Sobue
