Transcending fixed aesthetic ideas.
Achieving purification of mind through the creative process.

Society today is overflowing with information, constantly forcing us to think of ways we can organize it, hindering us from having the time to sense the world around us.
What moves us when we recognize something as ‘beautiful’?
What can we expect to encounter through a work of art ?

“EVOLVING” is an exhibition Toru Kaneko directed in 1992, reflecting his basic approach to contemporary art : always to push further and dig deeper.
Toru mentions, “At one of my ESPACE exhibitions, I happened to have the honor and pleasure of meeting a great artist who greatly inspired me. Now, I am even more inclined to explore further. Omnis is a group of artists who have a similar concept : art has the ability to express and communicate through ways other than just text. My hope is that the audience engages in the exhibition as a whole-body experience just like they would savor our meal or feel warmth, and ultimately achieve the purification of mind.”
In this exhibition, we are displaying over 30 pieces, including paintings and drawings that have never been exhibited before.
