Description

We would like to use this opportunity to display in details the process of the creation of Murayama’s Flowers. He starts with the research of existing flora making vivisection of the flower, taking multiple close-up photos and drawing sketches of its parts. Afterwards he moves to the digital dimension applying several softwares: 3ds Max for the form and structure, Adobe Photoshop for separate parts and composition, Adobe Illustrator to add indications of elements, scale and scientific names. Finally he makes large scale digital c-print, framing it into transparent plexiglas.

“Inorganic Flora” Exhibition will present the context of Murayama’s work in historical perspective and in connection with both technical art and botanical art. His “Inorganic Flora” from one side refers to botanical illustration of Ancient Greece as well as sketches of pioneer of Japanese botany Tomitaro Makino or images from Karl Blossfeldt’s “Art Form in Nature”. From another side Murayama’s flower takes root in works of master of automobile illustration Yoshihiro Inomoto, The Art of Engineer in the age of Industrial Revolution and X-Ray art of late 20th century.

During this first solo show of Muarayama we would like to clarify the hierarchy of his digital drawings and multiple links in the vast body of his works. We will present “Inorganic Flora” in two main parts, namely “Botanical Diagram” (flower images with textual and mathematical indications) and “Botech Art” (combination of Botanical Art and Techinical Art, which stresses 3-dimensional quality of the image and its color spectrum). The exhibition will be featured by Inorganic Flora Matrix composed of Botech Art works and botanical diagrams of all 3 views (top, front and side) of Commelina Communis flower.

Due to this unique approach to the ancient tradition of depicting flowers Murayama has already attracted vast attention of foreign press. His artistic method was described in WIRED magazine (USA), Inspirations (France), Telegraph (UK), Focus (Italy, Poland), Japan – lives and styles- (Russia), Muy Interesante (Spain) and so on. His images were presented on the cover of United Nations conference booklet dedicated to the protection of nature to illustrate coexistence of high technology and delicate organisms. Murayama’s works were chosen for the catalogues of Première Vision (Paris) and Directions by Indigo (New-York), the world’s premier fabric shows, to illustrate the concept of “ethereal structures” and represent the atmosphere of season 2012. You can find his flowers in corporate video of Panasonic Hollywood Laboratories as well as on the cover of “Asia Digital Art Award 2008” where he took Grand Prix in Still Images section.

Previously planned for April 2011 and canceled due to Nuclear Disaster in Japan, “Inorganic Flora” Exhibition will be opened on the 9th of December to present the emerging talent of the Japanese art-scene, which in his own way manifests the strongest features of his native culture, namely the unity of sensitivity and preciseness, shaped by the latest technologies.
