Hideki KIMURA, born in 1948, Kyoto, Japan, was graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts with majors in oil painting and printmaking. In 1988, he was sponsored by Japanese Government to study Fine Arts at University of Pennsylvania USA. In his early 20s, he was awarded the British International Print Biennale. In 2009, he was honored by Culture Prize and Kyoto Fine Art Culture Prize by Kyoto Prefectural Government. His works are mainly collected by National Museums in Japan, Germany, USA and Canada.
Hideki KIMURA is obsessed with ambiguity in existence, where the subject can sway in between two different sides but not confined to anyone. Misty, the exhibiting series feature the interweaving of rational moves and the overlapping of sentiments, which brings about the ambiguous atmosphere and provokes contradiction behind. His works could create a sense of unknown tension without advanced awareness of audience by the expression of misty, which moves slowly and unrestrictedly, carrying the sinister implication that could touch the deepest nature of beholders.
The physical world stands in front of our eyes every day; however, it always conceals an endless sense of ambiguity. As audience follows the movement of Misty and walks into a different space, imagination is given birth. Nevertheless, as audience turns around, the real world appears.
