Reminiscent of Japanese photography of the 1960s Rinko Kawauchi’s works from the series ‘Utatane’ (Japanese term for ‘Catnap’) are the search for the sublime amid the banal. Carps, clouds, a curtain, a tire, fried eggs, a grandfather, a butterfly. These are the details of everyday life that are too easily missed. Seen through the lens of Kawauchi’s camera however, the ordinary shines with patterns of light; even an ant transforms into a statement of style. A graceful contemplation of mortality, which demonstrate the artist’s finesse and skill of telling a photographic tale.
