Incandescence

The title “Incandescence” sounds like a manifesto. The four works are also titled with allusions to the practice of the artist. Three hands give birth to fire, while

the egg engulfed in flame is a symbol of life.

The Incandescence produces a body of heat which generates energy around

itself and enables it to hatch. The Incandescence characterizes both poetic passion and the state of love. And a work as its author owes to the state

of incandescence, a manifestation of what comes alive, here is what haunts

the spirit of the young Japanese artist.

The herbaria (preserved plant specimens) are from collections of vegetation that have been dried and glued on sheets of paper which include the origins of the specific type of plant.

 

Although very fragile, these show the plants in a way that they seem to always be alive. Akira Inumaru has an herbarium that was made by Mr. L Parmentier between 1885 and 1891.
