New gelatin silver prints by New York-based artist Go Sugimoto.
Paper-Work is paper-within-paper work. On a sheet of white photo paper is the image of a sheet of white paper itself. Sugimoto explores this duality with a clever Minimalist Abstract playfulness. The contrast between the object and the surrounding space and the contrast between the composition and the photo paper are maintained as minimally as possible. The image of the object is so ambiguous that one can hardly tell its material and orientation, yet it remains visible like a frost on clear weightless space.
Born in Yamaguchi, Japan in 1979, Sugimoto holds a certificate in general studies photography from International Center of Photography. His Walk In the Night black-and-white photo series was featured by Wraparound magazine in 2003 and was exhibited at M.Y. Art Prospects’ group shows in 2004 and 2005 . His most recent solo exhibition at Art Cocoon, Tokyo, was covered by the Japanese fashion/culture magazine Studio Voice. He works as a freelance printer and photographer.
