The work of Tetsuro Shimizu begins with a solid knowledge of the Informal lexicon to shift almost towards a negation of the same.The artist uses a painting technique that knows its collation well and constantly enters into confrontation with a research prospective. If texture aims to create an effect of density and movement through use of colour, the structure of the works tends to take on a direction of escape and fragmentation of surfaces, which cools and denies the pictorial enterprise. The very immediacy and splendid brutality of the Informal style sometimes enters into conflict with a definition of visual spaces that splits the original unit.If gestural painting possesses the characteristic of bringing immediate representation to thought and emotion, Shimizu knowingly breaks the unit of place and action. In this way he creates conceptually elaborate works in which the composite idea is calculated and never entrusted to the casualty of the moment.This is why his work is always iteresting and new. Space is not abandoned to the flow, retaining its fullness and strength.Space is relaunched in a shape which is closed yet suitable for modulation. Tetsuro's works leap off the wall, paying no restrictions to the wall, desiring only to fill space. If the segments of the works leave empty spaces and cracks, the idea of the painting fills them. Therefore uncertainty become temporary and makes contact with the spectator. The artist creates a hybrid, poetic and undefined space in which the elements of the work suggest a common language.
