A difficult time that is like a nightmare
Is that a tragedy because people knew to dream?
Here is a strange painter who makes a painting during such a situation
＜A painter’s self-talk during stay-at-home order＞
We have known each other since 13 years ago when Mizoe Art Gallery opened. Are these people represent himself inside Mr.Inoue? I really look forward to seeing what kind of faces are painted this time.

Ambivalence - this exhibition title implies the world expressed in Kota Nakamura's artworks. Beauty and ugliness, life and death, for example.
That was what caused the frisson when I saw his work for the first time. The beauty of a moment when a bullet pierces matter. A transient and also beautiful shape drawn by time and trajectory that should be an action of taking a life away. A contradiction that it is made by the gentle-mannered and calm person.
His history is also interesting as he has a grandfather who is a Western-style painter, Takuji Nakamura, and he learned contemporary art in New York in the early time where he experienced the simultaneous terrorist attack.
The feeling that I want to know this artist more deeply, want to see what kind of works and exhibition space he creates let me ask him to hold a solo exhibition.
Last autumn, his exhibition in Fukuoka overwhelmingly surpassed expectations.
His exhibition must amaze us again at the mansion of Denenchofu as a stage. Please look forward to it. (Kazunobu ABE, Mizoe Art Gallery)

We will remotely participate in ART TAIPEI 2021
Mizoe Art Gallery will exhibit remotely at "Art Taipei 2021".
This time, which will be the 6th exhibition, we will introduce two artists who are attracting attention by expressing the aesthetic sense peculiar to Japan. The first is Kenpei YUNDE, who delves into the culture rooted in Asia and draws it with his own technique as if he were plowing a canvas. The second is Takahide KOMATSU, who depicts the world of elegant butterflies and small animals that live quietly in "satoyama" with the theme of ecosystems. His works will be the first exhibition at ART TAIPEI.
This time it is a remote exhibition, and unfortunately the staff of Mizoe Art Gallery is not at the venue. When you come to the venue, please take your time to appreciate the exhibition woven by the two contemporary artists at booth No. V03.
