Deriving from the universe of toys and cartoons, Hikaru Narita’s visual language uses sculpture to address the impersonal nature of commercial goods and consumer culture. An example of Narita’s foray into the medium of painting, “Untitled” tests our ability to appreciate visual ambiguities, presenting a pile of colourful objects that transgress distinct boundaries of shape. Narita imagines his subject beyond conventional clarity and detail, rendering it elusive and almost unidentifiable. The objects in the painting exude a blurred and grainy quality, as if veiled behind a translucent layer, an example of Narita’s innovative use of painting as a medium. ...

“Trompe l’oeil, Les Falaises du Trocadéro, 18 mai 2021, 19h58, Paris, France, 2021” (JR1-1, 2021) is a giclée print employing the anamorphosis technique, which distorts the image when viewed from a specific angle. One of Leonardo da Vinci’s favourite techniques, anamorphosis allows JR to open unexpected spatial dimensions in the print. The Eiffel Tower is not only suspended between two sides of a cliff but also hovers above a bustling road that cuts through the image, introducing a symmetrical order. At the heart of the composition, a human figure holding an umbrella is suspended beneath the Eiffel Tower, emerging from the depths of the visual abyss.

Renowned for his innovative reimagination of classical masterpieces within a contemporary framework, Scottish artist Ross Muir skillfully weaves together tradition and modernity in his work. One such exemplary piece is "Trumpet", a giclée print on paper engaging in a dialogue with the legacies of street art. The core message of the image evokes the spirit of Jean Michel Basquiat, particularly his emphasis on words as pivotal elements in the painting's composition. Echoing Basquiat's sentiment that obscuring words enhances their visibility, Muir adopts a similar approach in "Trumpet." The artwork manifests as a collage-like structure, where words and images harmonize to create a visually compelling narrative.

"H8-2 Harvest" is one of four special edition prints created by Damien Hirst to support Save the Children's campaign. This project was launched in collaboration with the Fondazione Prada to support Italian children from disadvantaged backgrounds who were affected by the school closures during the Covid-19 pandemic. Each print in the series zooms in on a specific part of a larger canvas, capturing the small details and incredible texture achieved by layering paint on canvas. The vibrant paint strokes form a small segment of a larger canvas, enticing the viewer to imagine colours and shapes beyond the boundaries of the composition.
