《 The Voice Across the Road 》《 Cloak of the Night 》《 For the Kindness that Lies Beyond 》Aqyla on Canvas 28.6×28.6 in

Ben OGA Exhibition "Under the Deep Blue Sky"
December 10th(Sat) - December 25th(Sun), 2022

10:00am-6:00pm (Open every day during the event)

There are children, animals, bird-like creatures, houses, mountains, stars, and the landscape of the earth in the paintings of Ben Oga. Although they are obviously imagination by the artist, I cannot avoid feeling a sense of deja vu. There are stories including various emotions that take the audience into the world of the paintings to make them become a part of the story. Repeatedly coated paints like fabric will evoke thoughts, memories, hope for the future, and the prayers of happiness that everyone has in common. We would like you to enjoy the painted world of Oga in your own way.

Masahito Katayama Exhibition " Shape of Life "
November 5th (Sat) – November 25th (Sun), 2022

10:00am – 6:00pm (Open every day during the event)

Throughout his career, Masahito Katayama has continued to seek new ways of expression and his works have evolved greatly as a result. “Botanical Figuration” “Wind” “Membrane” “HANA” “Spiral” “Memento Mori”-
What is consistent between these themes is the feeling of being connected to something that is invisible yet absolute, a sensation that goes beyond the five senses and stimulates even the sixth sense.
The artist moved to Fukuoka 23 years ago and began painting mainly in yellow for his Membrane series, which was a large shift from his previously monochromatic works. Yellow is the color of the light that falls on life, and the color of pollen. In one of the works from the series, a spiral pattern in the center of a sunflower is portrayed in yellow, as if to celebrate all life in the natural world. In the HANA series, delicate and graceful forms are depicted to show the radiance of life, as well as the fragility of it all. Finally, the Memento Mori series depicts countless butterflies fluttering in the air, in a space somewhere in between life and death.
In this exhibition, you will be able to see Katayama’s newest works as well as his previous works. We are awaiting your visit to our gallery.
