Born in 1980, graduated from Tama Art University Graduate School, MFA in 2007. Imazu's painting works are characteristic at the unique composition in which two or more spectacles are layouted in one canvase. This is the first solo exhibition in this gallery.

Fluctuating World
I try to anchor myself with a criterion settled down somewhere, only to find it ceaselessly flow out of its place.
In a social life, I cannot lay myself with ease, with the unknown and novel values sweeping me, leaving me up in the air.
I imbue information I encounter at every moment to my paintings in forms of images.
This is the dilemma—I struggle to keep in contact with, and leave the trace of, the world which I cannot seize.
The act of drawing is the only value I can trust.
