He will also read aloud his original poem with music.

It has been almost ten years since I saw the artworks by Oga last introduced by a gallery. I was strongly fascinated and after that, I saw his artworks at many places I visited and became acquainted with the artist himself. It may have meant to happen, and the timing is now. We agreed to hold his first solo exhibition at Mizoe Art Gallery.

His imagined landscape appears like the world of a fairy tale at a glance although the sorrow of human being and melancholic elements are hidden. The sophisticated colors are created by adding lots of layers of paint like textiles. You will be immersed in the world of artworks full of poetical sentiment created by Fumihiro Oga.

Masahito Katayama Exhibition "Membrane/ the Heavenly Flowers"
September 21th (Sat) – October 6th (Sun), 2019

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

The artworks by Masahito Katayama evoke feeling that not only visual information but also the sixth sense is stimulated beyond the five senses. The painted image can be recognized either as figurative or abstract. . In addition to such
works, there are also a series of flowers inspired by a painting on the ceiling of a temple. The exhibition space surrounded by the artworks makes me feel as if I came down on the heavenly paradise. From "botanical figuration" to "wind", "membrane", and "spiral", his style has transformed with the constant pursuit of new expression.
Please look forward to the new world he shows in this exhibition.

However, what KOMATSU shows in this exhibition is abstract artworks that is challenge for the artist.
