It Tears Us Apart
It tears us apart is a new series of paintings by Kubota Fumikazu. Six large, hard-edged abstract paintings explore line, form and colour with assertive force. The paintings act as stand-ins for a consideration of tensions, borders and boundaries between warring parties. Lines become players in a busy field of war games, in moments of conflict and connection.
Kubota Fumikazu is a Melbourne-based artist originally from Japan. His practice centres on geometric forms, in a range of architectural or mathematical expressions. He completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Visual Art at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) in 2013 and regularly exhibits in Melbourne’s Artist Run Initiatives.
