Hiroshi Sugimoto: Still Life
20.04 > 19.08.2018
The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium are pleased to welcome the work of Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto in its exhibition "Still Life".
Some forty photographs are displayed in two rooms in the museum. These works will interact with works of ancient art that are displayed nearby. Sugimoto's work is reminiscent of that of the Flemish primitives - true precursors of photography - with whom they share many characteristics such as richness in details and depths, surprising light effects or thoughts on nature.
Born in 1948, Sugimoto studied Oriental Philosophy at Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. Through his work, he combines Western art and Eastern mysticism. His works have served as a bridge between heritage and ideologies of the East and the West. He is best known for his seascapes, which he began to photograph in the 1980s.
