AONO FumiakiBiograpy

Aono Fumiaki was born in Sendai in 1968. He graduated from Miyagi University of Education Graduate School. His art work has consisted of collecting torn cloth, newspaper pages and broken sign boards and extending or restoring the damaged parts using compatible materials. The artist intends to “restore” the lost materiality of the objects in the process of reshaping them into new objects and combining the pieces with other substances. His work goes beyond simply transforming or restoring, and aims to heal, fix, and restore. 
His works have been extending their range since 2011. Whereas his past productions were anesthetizing daily objects by formally restoring them, his recent works gain further meaning by aspiring to artistic healing, reflecting a desire to restore meaning as well as form. Numerous art museum and gallery collections, such as ones at Aichi Art Mueum and Miyagi Art Museum, include his productions. Fumiaki currently works and lives in Sendai.

아오노 후미아키는 1968년 센다이 시(市)에서 출생하였고, 미야기 대학 미술교육과를 졸업하였다. 후미아키는 찢어진 천이나 신문 조각, 깨진 간판 조각 등을 모은 뒤, 비슷한 재질로 조각의 유실된 부분을 연장시키는 작업을 해왔다. 작가는 수집된 파편들이 다른 오브제와 결합하여 새로운 오브제로 창조되는 과정에서 그 물건들의 잃어버린 물성을 ‘복원’하고자 한다. 이 과정은 단순히 물건을 변형하고 원래의 자리에 복구하는 것을 넘어 치유하고 수리, 복원한다는 의미를 담고 있다. 
 특히 2011년 대지진 이후 그의 작품관은 더욱 확장되고 있다. 과거의 작품들이 형태를 복원한 일상적 오브제의 예술화였다면, 현재는 그 사물의 의미까지 복원하여 다시 살리려는 의지가 반영된 예술적 치유의 의미가 부여되고 있다. Rias Ark 미술관, 시마네 미술관, 아이치 트리엔날레 등에서 개인전 및 단체전을 하였고, 아이치 미술관, 미야기 미술관 외 다수의 미술관과 갤러리에 작품이 소장되어 있다.
