Junichiro Iwase: Mu: Beyond Duality

Art Beatus Consultancy Ltd., Vancouver, BC - Sep 15-Nov 10

by Robin Laurence

Informing the paintings and sculptures in this solo exhibition is the Buddhist concept of mu, which the artist defines as recognition “that there is no definitive right or wrong, true or false, or good or bad.” Junichiro Iwase’s subtly nuanced variations on Hard-Edge and minimalist strategies eschew these kinds of polarities and, instead, pose possibilities for meditation and even transcendence. Art, he writes, “is merely an extension of nature.”
