Yuya Suzuki, born in Fukushima in 1983, is the third Japanese artist to participate in this year's collaboration between PCCA and S-AIR, and has a rich international residency experience. The main axis of the artist’s creation focuses on studying the appearance of the city and in-depth observation of the urban patterns of different countries. This residency project will take Jinxi ancient town as the main body to create in the concept of field art, recording and collecting local images of Jinxi and then converting them into paintings, three-dimensional objects, printed materials, and video elements.
Yuya Suzuki's paintings and installations are brightly colored and optically nimble. Objects in the environment are selected as the base, reshaped in an abstract geometric style and output, showing the artist's perception of contemporary culture. Yuya Suzuki's work is based on the same concept as “the illusion of attention" in the famous "Invisible Gorilla” psychology study and discovers new ideas in modes of thinking in which the object is transformed into symbolic meaning.
