Hideaki Yamanobe, born in 1964 near Fukushima and living in Germany and Japan, is one of the important artists of the middle generation internationally. Committed to both Eastern and Western traditions, he quickly found a distinctive pictorial expression. The materiality of the works with their transparent, then opaque layers of color, mostly based on black and white - now and then on a strong English red - corresponds in many ways with spatial and atmospheric references. The atmospheric values and ideas of nature retain something indeterminate, the emotional content appears as if transferred inward, and one is repeatedly referred to the painting itself. Graphic elements, line drawings and incisions, lead to a rhythmization and formal consolidation. At times, especially in the works on paper, the representational element takes on greater weight. The genuine qualities reveal themselves in every format, whether in the miniatures or the large canvases. With the most economical means and on the basis of color restriction, which only makes the richness of nuance possible, pictorial solutions of great urgency are created.
