Takeshi Furuya




Takeshi versteht es den Augenblick zum Ereignis zu verstärken. Ohne sich aufzudrängen, bescheiden, jedoch kraftvoll und in umfassenden Bildern, zeigt er das Ganze und das Gegenwärtige gleichermaßen.

Ein Atemzug Stille...

Der Moment, gefasst in der Bewegung eines Fußes.

Form und Verzerrung, fließende Bewegung und farbige Auflösung.

 Text: Michael Aldrian

Wo Schmerz mit Hoffnung kommuniziert,

fügen Takeshi`s Fotos der Handlung Linien hinzu;

ausgedehnte Farbstreifen.

The documentation from Takeshi Furuya are made from realistic but also artificial viewpoint of the cultural performances.
On the one hand the pictures are rich of colour and sharpeness; on the other hand their are corrected in the capturing from moving scenes, as in Performances, dances or sport.His images documenting not only, they are shown persons ore objects in another triangle, this over 45°,this means he can see over the camera above, he is feeling with his camera.

Biography :

Japanese Visual-Artist Takeshi Furuya's works take on multiple styles such as

the digital painting by Video/Photograph’s material, Visual-Screening, Installations, Performances. 
He composes the digital generated images like a painting which inspired by the aesthetics of "decadence” frequencies and adapted the digital errors as Glitch Art.

These works were exposed on many Galleries, Museums, Fil,m Festivals and Art –fairs.
It's also represented about the paradigm-shift from the binomial
theorem to the meta-dualism philosophy in the  21st century.  It also represents the error of  systems on Capitalism.
His artwork of the digital paintings are made by just one flame which  extracted from the video sequences.
In case of video-work, it's made by the light drawing. He produces a eternal moment of the light and life in vividly by unique and experimental way.
