Inhaltsangabe: The volume is the first monograph by the Japanese artist Kazuki Takamatsu, published on the occasion of his comeback with the solo show ?Even a Doll Can Do It?, from February 14th to April 4th, at the Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, the diamond point in the European Pop Surrealist scene. The artist puts up feminine bodies, half dolls, with japanese features, painted in black and white through the depth mapping technique, which gets from digital research to gouache and acrylic painting, achieving a multilayered and tridimensional effect, full of transparencies, inspired by the holograms and the X-ray vision. The book, with its elegant cover and numerous images, allows the reader to discover Kazuki Takamatsu?s iconography, its roots ? from nature to manga ? and the dialogue between popular culture, technology and the study of moods and states of mind. The result is an intimate universe, permeated by melancholy, in which the choice of monochromatism recalls the fight between the good and the evil, the marginal area between the light and the darkness.
Über den Autor: Kazuki Takamatsu currently lives and works in Sendai, which was devastated by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami back in 2011. The event can still be felt in Takamatsu?s work which mixes sorrow with hope in a spiral of emotions. Takamatsu?s depth-mapping technique is as unique as it is painstakingly intricate, fusing classic drawing, airbrush and gouache painting with computer graphics. The artist?s black and white Dolls, born in a digital study, take their shape through the infinite declinations of whites and grays in order to reemerge from an abyssal deepness.
