Kuroda - Figure Not Figure

L’humain, dans la peinture de Kuroda, semble revêtir une apparence presque géométrique, la figure est devenue symbole.

Weeping through the light, 1991 - 270 x 160 cm
Figure Bleue, 2008 - 300 x 200 cm
Passage VI, 2005 - 200 x 200 cm

Aki Kuroda seeks to disrupt the balance between figurative and non-figurative. For him, as for many artists such as Miró, Klee, Picabia or Man Ray, but also Rothko or Kelly, an abstract art that would refuse the link to reality cannot exist.
Sans titre rouge, 1989 - 270 x 160 cm

The female figure that punctuates his work looks like a caryatid. But this figure is not totally human, in a futuristic projection, and perhaps premonitory, the being, rid of its carnal envelope, takes the appearance of a robot, cold and devoid of sensitivity.
Wood cuttings, 1994 and engraving, 1990
Sometimes this elongated form is transformed into a narrow opening, an entrance, a breach to another world. It becomes the passage between reality and dream, between the Earth and the Cosmos.
