Time waits for no Man or Machine

artist(s): Yoichi Tanabe
Tasneem Gallery presents the second solo exhibition of Yoichi Tanabe.
The presentation exhibits the latest works of the artist who chooses the landscape as a centrepoint for reflection. Through his technical skill and the combination of different methods, Tanabe expresses his fascination for the passage of time, using memories of industrial scenes, places of transit, the nature and the presence of the human figure.
The exhibition introduces a new stage in his production where the glance from the distance and the loss of the rigorous detail shows his constant search for different forms of representation.
