Empty Buckets :


The materialisation of emptiness being nothing but still making something. Water generates an abstractness to make a visual image. Kobayashi sets a question to himself by conceptualising the idea of what the process of making images as painting is, what artist can do without material in the space. The relationship between liquidity and body, the fluidity of making work from nothing to something, with existing material in the moment as water until disappearing.
