Ayako Rokkaku - Imagination for Flying Adventure

KÖNIG LONDON presents IMAGINATION FOR FLYING ADVENTURE, an exhibition of paintings by Ayako Rokkaku.

Rokkaku’s supple images transend the conventional categories of figuration and abstraction. IMAGINATION FOR FLYING ADVENTURE is Rokkaku’s first solo show in the U.K. Its title refers to an energetic entrenchment and the physical and emotional flights her paintings make possible.

Throughout the exhibition, the body becomes a vehicle for inspiration through an attention to its nuanced sensations. Recurring motifs crop up across Rokkaku’s paintings but they are defined by the liminal space between them and the physical movements which contextualize this space, giving rise to manga-styled creatures: cartoon-like girls whose eyes brim with an individuated sentience.
