Borja Gomez Diez

[Basque, Spain]

Borja Gómez Diez uses painting and drawing to explore the boundaries of what is visual and what is tactile. Through the gesture, color and materiality, forms and elements emerge. As a theme, there is no theme. In a sort of understanding by not understanding, the recurring questions of the artist take shape through different layers on the surface, resulting in a long process of visions and revisions that his hand will then probably revoke. Based in Bilbao (Basque Country), he attaches great importance to what happens in his studio, a place of introspection where failure, encounter and love coexist, and where all things are susceptible to move in and out of being.

Residency plan:
During his stay at Youkobo Art Space Borja will continue to work on his paintings and drawings while he merges into the city; wandering across the neighborhoods of Tokyo without a clear objective, in search of experiences and inspirations that unfold new ways of
looking.
