The body of the work is inspired by Takesada Matsutani’s solo show at the Hauser and Wirth Gallery, NY (2016), as well as Fulop’s teacher, Prof. Koie Ryoj, an avant-garde artist working in Japan. Both artists attempt to ‘come back to the moment’, in the creation of work inspired by the zen approach. Japanese in origin the title NOBUtranslates as ‘trust’ or ‘expend’ and refers to how the work emerges from a process of ‘conversation’ or ‘exchange of energy’ with the medium and how this ‘energy’, immanent to the work, is manifested or ‘expended’ in the viewers experience.
