When: Show runs February 8 - April 6
Opening Reception Friday, February 8 from 7 - 9 p.m.
Location: Kimball Visual Arts Center, Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery
Cost: Free and open to the public

In his installation, Reverse of Volume, Yasuaki Onishi uses the simplest materials — plastic sheeting and black hot glue — to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float in space. The process that he calls "casting the invisible" is Onishi’s meditation on the nature of the negative space, or void, left behind. Almost like stepping into an inner sanctum or cave-like chamber, the semi-translucent plastic sheeting and wispy strands of hot glue will envelop the viewer in a fragile, tent-like enclosure speckled with inky black marks. Visitors will be able to walk in and out of the contemplative space, and observe how the simplest qualities of light, shape, and line change from different perspectives.
