"Where do you live?" 2020 Oil on canvas 63.77x51.18 in 162 x 130 cm

On 9th January this year, the next day after the second state of emergency was announced, I visited the first day of Nomiyama Gyoji: Exhibition Celebrating His 100th Birthday at Nihombashi Takashimaya. At the moment I stepped in, I was overwhelmed by the energy of the artworks, overflowing vitality, as well as the wave of colors and brushstrokes. It is surprising that most of them were painted after the year 2000, in recent years. Every time I visited his studio after that, he faced a new canvas every time by himself. His creative urge is growing rather than declining.
One-fifth of the 21st century has passed. In a time hit by unprecedented disaster, Gyoji Nomiyama shows us a ray of hope. In this exhibition, we display approximately 35 artworks including large works focusing on his works after 2000.

"People often asked whether my painting is figurative or abstract.
I only paint what my eyes see. To paint is to pull out the shape lurking behind visible things onto the surface of artwork" This is what Gyoji Nomiyama said who is famous for abstract paintings. Actually, artworks that we think abstract painting are often shapes of objects painted through the filter of the artist's eyes.
Then what makes it an abstract painting? "Cool" "Modern" "Not understandable" People get a variety of feelings from abstract artworks.

By exhibiting abstract artworks from our collection, we want you to consider what artists want to express and to feel the merriment of appreciating art. (Mizoe Art Gallery, Kazunobu Abe)
