De Buck Gallery is pleased to announce an upcoming exhibition of works by acclaimed Japanese Gutai master Shozo Shimamoto. Do Something Interesting, See Something Odd, delves ever deeper into Shimamoto’s revolutionary career trajectory, incorporating works dating from the 1960s Gutai period through the artist’s death in 2013. The exhibition provides an overview of the maturation of Shimamoto’s style and technique. Centerpieces include examples of his trademark Bottle Crash series, in which the artist created lively, abstract paint-smattered works by ceremoniously throwing bottles and other containers full of pigment at otherwise blank canvases, highlighting the innovative performance-based methods and the energy, visually documented within the works, with which Shimamoto approached his art over the course of his lengthy career. Pieces such as the 2011 Untitled (Ping Pong), which incorporates islands of ping pong balls across the surface of the canvas, exemplify a characteristic playfulness and desire to push the limits of what is possible in art that embodies the very spirit of Gutai, and of Shimamoto’s work and life.
