Base Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the very first solo show of Keisuke Shirota.

Keisuke Shirota's painting starts from a single photograph.
The photo is firstly glued to the surface, then he paints in monochrome of gray.

This anonymous photographic landscape has been shot with autofocusing and without looking into viewfinder. It surely is a part of which he has really seen, but only a vague piece of memory. Some clearly, others ambivalently, an enormous amount of memories are laid out in perspective. Was I ever there, and did I really see those? These stored memories come and go, far and close. Each memory is so uncertain, however, it tells us that the memories themselves are the one which we are really made of.

Shirota's painting questions us what is the act of "seeing", in the meantime tells how helpless the surrounding world is.
