Purification: This goal gives life to all the artistic career of Shuhei Matsuyama. In the face of his works, starting from a suspension of contemplation, the viewer can immerse themselves in fact an inner dimension purified from the dross and the accidents of everyday life. This objective is driven by the cathartic “sound color” composed of Matsuyama. And, not surprisingly, “Shin-On” (sounds) is the character that the artist uses as the title of all his works: paintings and installations. Often in his shows, beside the paintings, they are also protagonists music written for the occasion. And the artist elaborates the pictorial material for overlaps progressive, in first order to evoke the succession of musical sounds. Emerge empty bright that describe or tell anything, ineffable and inexpressible because it came from size immemorial.
