Akihito Izumi

According to Akihito Izumi, the themes occupying his work concern “uncharacteristic, everyday things.” What this unpacks into are walks at night, train rides, bus stops, bridges and other quotidian encounters—all rendered in terms of the ghostly dynamism that only memory can glimpse. Preferring the slow-drying textures of oil paints, the subject-matter of Izumi’s paintings are often places of transit (trains, hostels, etc.), which are given an otherworldly yet colorful wash such as can only derive from the meeting point of memory and imagination.  

Indeed, places of meeting and points of intersection are recurring themes in Izumi’s work. His geometric eye recasts the raw material of experience into diagonals lines, squares, rectangles, and triangles—all the while preserving the uniqueness of a once visited place, a remembered site, before it was abstracted into these universal forms and shapes. What makes Izumi’s work significant is not only his choice of colors (setting the mood for an individual painting or series), but the way in which he abstracts from the experiences that form his inspiration, preserving only their essential character.
