Splendid and free-flowing brushstrokes that twirl and turn like a sprightly dragon break out of the boundaries of canvases and soar beyond, leaving behind ethereal traces of wild and rampant energy. With the tip of his brush, the artist leaves an annotation that exudes an unpredictable aura, which instantly takes shape in places where the brush has graced, ever so brilliantly magnificent and mesmerizing. US-based Japanese artist Meguru YAMAGUCHI explores the idiom, “paint the dragon, dot the eyes”, which in East Asian culture symbolizes “the final stroke”, or “the finishing touch”. The artist uses his signature dynamic style of splattering paints to resonate with the allegorical meaning of the legend, with his observations and reflections on life and the universe cohesively presented in THE UNDERGROUND SPIRITUAL BLUE, the largest solo exhibition to date in his art career. On view in this exhibition is a comprehensive presentation of Yamaguchi’s creative trajectory, including the iconic series, OUT OF BOUNDS and MÖBIUS, and his groundbreaking 2022 series, The Underground Spiritual Blue. The exhibition also includes a 2.8-meter-tall sculpture, the artist’s largest piece to date. Demonstrating unconfined techniques and paradigm shifts, Yamaguchi’s art practice breaks existing frameworks and is in pursuit of a creative core with infinite possibilities.
