[Tokyo]Tomonori TOYOFUKU Exhibition October 7th(Sat) ― 22nd (Sun), 2017
Mizoe Art Gallery will hold a solo exhibition by Tomonori TOYOFUKU, who
used to have an atelier in Milan for over 40 years and has gained a lot of international recognition after exhibiting in Venice Biennale in 1960.
The works with sophisticated and dignity form, show the power and artist’s inner world lively. As the symbol of Tomonori TOYOFUKU’s works, the light crosses the elliptical hole rhythmically pierced from both sides, and also the wind passes through. This kind of style offers the astonishment and emotions which are beyond generations and races. Anyway, it is “cool” without any reason.
Welcome to Mizoe gallery to chase the artist’s trajectory which is consisted of bronze and drawing works, centered around the 8 pieces of wood carving, which was made from 1970s to 1990s and also the masterpiece “Exploration of Light ‘85” that was collected by kismet by our gallery, crossing the boundaries between the oriental and western, concrete and abstract.

Within the great location of beautiful ocean view and Kobe’s street sights, it will be an easy-going event for as many people as possible to join. We look forward to seeing you all at the Kobe Art Marché (KAM)
Mizoe Art Gallery/Room 1305, we are going to present two artists Kenpei Yunde and Takeshi Wei, who are well received in last year.
Firstly, Kenpei Yunde believes that all the motifs are present on the “soil”, and he has been painting clumsily with the steady style in which he spends one whole year for putting on the oils again and again and then shaving where he doesn’t need to express the deep beauty from the thick materials and oil paints simply.In contrast, all the research drawings which were drew in coverage places, express the artist’s respiration and realistic feeling of the site within the improvisational sense of speed.
Secondly, the figures tinged with sorrow which comes out of the artist’s imagination. The still life paintings full of tranquility and vitality. Very imaginative objects made of found driftwood and waste lumbers. Illustration-like attractiveness of the woodblock prints with the original technique of the artist. Despite its variety, each piece has reached a high degree of perfection. Please enjoy the world of Takeshi Wei, which is full of poetic sentiment and tenderness.
Please enjoy the new encounter with the work.
Fee: 1,000 yen (Multi-Day Passport)
* If there is a purchase of merchandise over 5000 yen at the event; there will be a 1000 yen deduction available.
