Ikuo Kubota is a photographer who, like many, got his start in commercial photography working for several fashion and lifestyle magazines.  Inspired by the timelessness of  Erik Satie’s Musique d’ameublement (furniture music), in 2009 Kubota set to work creating a body of artwork that could infinitely be enjoyed without growing old. The result was “Picture Furniture,” a departure from landscape and nature photography and, instead, a white-on-white chromatic sensation of dilution that re-imagines the mundane.

The upcoming solo exhibition will consist of roughly 30 gelatin silver prints and will open on Sept. 3 at Gallery Speak For.
