Hiroki Tsukuda

藝術家-画作

佃弘樹簡介

Hiroki Tsukuda’s monochromatic, kaleidoscopic cityscapes are constructed as dense collages combining both digital and printed material. A former graphic designer, he assembles his source material digitally only to draw them out by hand using ink and charcoal on a large scale. This process makes room for impromptu gestures—drips, scratches—in what otherwise appears as meticulous and perfectly geometric image prisms. Tsukuda’s intricate and collapsing worlds-within-worlds draw from apocalyptic visions of the future found in films, video games, comics, and novels—often those the artist encountered in his youth, such as the sci-fi classics 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Blade Runner (1982) as well as the manga series Fist of the North Star (1983–1988). Transforming fractures of buildings, bodies, plants, technology, and miscellaneous street signage into dizzying and abstracted imagescapes, Tsukuda reflects upon the material signifiers of technological dystopia, particularly from a Japanese perspective—and draws a parallel between a fictional apocalypse and the actual anxiety and despair of our times. For this exhibition, Tsukuda has devised a new work that specifically recalls the cityscape of Hong Kong, which so often has been riffed on in cyberpunk cinema in both Japan and the West. The result serves as a tribute to the genre, and in particular to Hong Kong’s unique urban aesthetic that continues to be abstracted in the sci-fi mythos.
