“The Drawings Show: Lines in Charcoal, Ink, Watercolor, Galvanized Iron and Black Rubber”
January 3 – June 30, 2012

Akira Ikeda Gallery would like to announce an exhibition of Alain Kirili’s drawings as part of “The Drawing Show” series at our New York gallery from January 3 through June, 30, 2012. Sculpture exhibitions of Alain Kirili will follow in our Berlin and Tokyo galleries.

In all Kirili’s work, including stone sculptures, forged iron verticals and clay pieces, drawing lines and calligraphy are present.

For this show in New York, Kirili decided to confront drawings on paper and drawings in space, utilizing charcoal, ink, watercolor, galvanized iron and black rubber.

Kirili’s work is based on rhythm created by the great improvisers of our time.
