MISAKO & ROSEN is pleased to announce our exhibition with Miki Mochizuka - Skew. Miki Mochizuka was born (1974) and presently lives and works in Shizuoka, Japan. Mozhizuka's recent solo exhibitions include Shane Campbell, Chicago (2016), Quadrangle, MISAKO & ROSEN (2014) and The Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum, Shizuoka(2012-13). In 2014, he exhibited in "The way of painting" at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery.

Mochizukafs paintings are formed from ambiguous memories and abstract mental afterimages. These elements are transformed by the artist in an act of convenience; suddenly there is a deviation, a skewing of essence in favor of fact. In these new paintings, Mochizuki eschews inessential brushwork in favor of the use of his bare hand, resulting in a controlled imbalance. In this way, the physical process of painting is also askew. Much like a cloud transforming or the unfolding of a Japanese fable, the oversaturated paintings may serve to prompt a shifting sense of perception and understanding.
