Kenro Izu Still Life

2nd january 2000 - 20th february 2000

Nature: bodies and flowers, poetic images, sinuous lines, pictorial views, shadows. Emotional close-ups in which all references to space and time are lost: the bent back of a woman’s body looks like the stem of a flower; the folds of the flesh look like the cavities in a lily; bodies and flowers are juxtaposed in an ideal confrontation in which there are no winners or losers. Ever-changing forms are fixed, congealed in absolute time.
Kenro Izu’s photographs are like the photo-pictorial experiments of the late nineteenth century, when the technique used was the daguerreotype.
With Izu we find ourselves before a virtuoso of manual printing who chooses to express himself in platinum and palladium prints, making photographs so intense and creative that we can recognise them as his work right away.
