Sai Hashizume


Berlin, Germany

For the Japanese artist Sai Hashizume art has a metaphysical value playing a sensual game, provocativeness which induces the viewer to reflect with irony on the contemporary world. The mirror of the world for Sai Hashizume is a possibility of extreme openness, a daydream in which everything is possible: a fabric assumes life, a body expresses its eros in nudity, objects come alive and persue each other.

What remains in the paintings of Sai Hashizume is a poetic atmosphere, a tone of rarefied melancholy, a desire to reveal the world with a secret of a -questionably- lost harmony, the secret of a game closer to a dream than to reality.
