Curator’s statement

In recent history, the idea or concept behind a work of art has been an important focal point and measure of what makes good art, art. Seiichi Kobayashi resists meaning, and allows his paintings to just be, with works becoming a rolling sensation for viewers. The purpose of art for Seiichi is not separate from the purpose of technology and with this; he pushes past traditional painting and brush stroke methods, instead painting through silkscreen to create new possibility.

Functional challenges viewers to look beyond the conceptual and into an exhibition of actuality.
