Motus Fort presents a group of emerging Artists in Spectral Analysis for our second exhibition in Tokyo. We offer a sampling from each Artist's for your own analysis. Our selection includes Americans and Japanese, while demonstrating common interests, no matter their point of origin or background. Each Artist sets out asking questions and follows their investigation, not aiming for a conclusion, but to better comprehend. Many of the Artists compound meaning and urgency by relating the medium to the concept.


Christy Speakman uses a discontinued, sensuous, metallic paper to reproduce her cosmic oil halos; Chris Jahncke casts meteoric dust to create a spatial colorfield; Andrew Guenther wanted to paint with black fear so he used squid ink; travis reminds us that generations of dispossession results in natural expressions of hostility, and he does not frame his work but entrenches them within spiked borders. Tom Brauer cuts and folds out plans to realize utopias, while Yu Yasuda, Dan Kopp, Stephanie Dodes and Tai Ogawa draw to realize inner worlds that expand under scrutiny. Satomi Shirai, Susan Lipper and Ann Waddell explore communities within the remote confines of privileged access colluding with their subjects to form even more unexpected or hyped realities. With our two sculptors David Kennedy Cutler and Kei Ogasawara, the former employs crushed CD fragments to cover the bark of Limb, and Kei creates palimpsest of used boxes as a meditation on ecology, storage and presentation anxiety.


As a further prism each artist selected ~15 audio pieces to further our experience into their creative process and act as a connection to the outside world that we all inhabit. Additionally, Spectral Analysis is curated with the goal of keeping prices under \100,000 to demystify the collecting process, and bring Art closer to a manageable encounter. Each individual piece offers a unique meditation that expands with time.
