Yasushi Ebihara

Born 1976 in Ibaragi prefecture.

2001 M.F.A. Tokyo National University of the Arts.

Ebihara’s works range from the LUST series paintings of entwined hair, the dress series paintings of gorgeous couture items, to the exploration of single movie scenes in the NOISE series, and the Macaulay Culkin series, a symbolic child actor lost in existence.

Often inspired by small excerpts of contemporary film, his work draws attention to the fleeting beauty and tragic sentiments of existences that are exhausted by consumerism and faded away from our memories in the flow of time.

Taut and suspenseful, Ebihara’s oil paintings feature layer upon layer of delicate brushwork, while he works with sculpture, photography and performance as well. Through these various mediums, he revives the disappearing at the place of art.

In June 2017, KEN NAKAHASHI is hosting a solo exhibition featuring his latest Macaulay Culkin: Tarot Cards series.
