Ryota’s drawings explore and demonstrate the hybrid/multi-layered process where varying scale, juxtaposition of different forms, intertwined textures/tones are applied to reinvent and question the spatial conditions of drawings. Most of work combine both traditional media (ink, acrylic, and graphite) and digital media (algorithmic processing, scripting and image compositing with custom software).
