In the works of the series entitled La Notte, Aki Kuroda has painted clues that we usually associate with the immensity of night. He has thus composed spaces in which illusions of depth, contradictory or elusive, give the vertiginous sensation of facing vast expanses, with no apparent limits.
To create these spatial impressions, Aki Kuroda articulates signs that our memory associates with the idea of limitless expanse. By playing on the automatism of our deductions, he guides our perceptions. In the impossibility of ordering elements located in the same space, we experience the illusion of infinity. Sometimes, novel arrangements of depth cues multiply the dizzying sensations associated with them. They generate unfamiliar spatial impressions that powerfully overwhelm the flat surface of the canvas.
