AKIRA OTSUBO

The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition
August 25 – September 8, 2015
Reception: Thursday, August 27, 2015 6-8 PM

Akira Otsubo’s photographs suggest shadows of humanity hovering in scenes of daily life. Blurred human figures shift in and out of desaturated rooms, with the simple textures of curtains or blank walls made more apparent in contrast to the blur of human action. Layers of memory appear ghostlike in manmade, sensitively lit interiors, whether as faint traces of human figures or almost solid bodies made anonymous and transient by a blur of motion.

Focusing on human psychology and the remnants of past generations, Otsubo takes her photographs in hotels in Japan, exploring the fluctuating human existence of a temporary space.
