    Flyer&Bunner Design: KISHIMOTO Rinko


    How is an idea conceived, and what are the paths that lead to its completion?
    Let’s consider this, through completed works of art.

    Seian Art Center of Seian University of Art and Design presents “UNCOVER”, a group show exhibiting the works of 3 artists, Takuma Uematsu, Takashi Kunitani, and Kumpei.
    There are always many backgrounds hidden within artworks. These include the artist’s personal experiences and thought processes, as well as unique skills borne from creating artworks.
    In accordance with the 3 artists’ exhibits, this show utilises methods and mediums that differ from what the artists usually use, and actively aims to make visible the hidden elements within the artworks.
    Designed in a way that begins with completion then excavates back through time, the exhibition space provides a significant opportunity to appreciate new aspects and possibilities held innately within the artists.
