Since the birth of the quantum computer, the way quantum acts became a hot topic.
It is said that misty ambiguous being called quantum comprises the whole immense universe from micro to macro.
Accordingly, the world we sense is nothing but 2-dimensional information projected onto our perception as 3-dimensional existence due to quantum entanglement.
If quantum froze and everything in the world became a 2-dimensional state, how would the image appear to us?

 We hold a solo exhibition of Kikuma Mochizuki who is a metal sculptor creating a number of public art all over Japan. This time, we display artworks related to the three main artworks including the first artwork of “Destruction Series”, a work that was named by a Journalist at that time and became the starting point for him to get into the world of art, “META-SHOCK” 1971, the final work of MFA course at Tokyo University of the Arts which was awarded Salon de Printemps prize and received a favorable reputation in the foreign exhibition of Japan Art Festival, and also the latest artwork  “Shine ⋅ Link” 2020 that was developed from recent "Awakening Device Series".
The exhibition is comprised of about 50 artworks such as flat artworks in which pictorial elements are emphasized over time as a continuum of Metal Drawing Series that was started to express the concept of “Destruction Series”, 
sculptural and flat works that reflect his recent freewheeling situation without restraints “as he pleases”, the trophy of "Tamori Cup" which was discontinued later. We would be grateful if you see - Past and Present - the path of the art of Kikuma Mochizuki over half of a century.

Mizoe Art Gallery introduces two artists.
The first one is Nami Shibata who is holding her solo exhibition in our gallery this autumn. Her representative series “Montage” that manifests “portraits of nobody” expresses identical worldview with the spirit and vibrant brushstrokes of the artist beyond the notion of concept and motif.
The second artist is Takashi Yatouji. The fresh and vivid scene that seems to display geometric questions. His artworks created by reconstructing motif using unique lines and colour fields give so strong impression that sticks in our memories to indicate the birth of brand new artistic expression.

12 artists are selected by 8 galleries including our gallery to exhibit a number of expressive artworks. Please see the works by spirited artists who are highly expected for further activities. We are sincerely waiting for your visit.

[Tokyo]Wasaburo ITOZONO Exhibition, February 29 (Sat) – March 22 (Sun), 2020
 

The imaginary landscape that seems to close in on the essence of the objects in a simplified image. I was attracted at the first glance in the emotional, serene, and poetic world that moves my mind. While I followed the track of the artist to know what kind of person he was, I got to know he was a person of integrity whom everyone admired. Quiet, thoughtful, and warm. He trained the younger at Kitakyushu Free Painting Atelier and the College of Art at Nihon University. People who have been under his tutelage praise his character unanimously.
This exhibition will show about 25 artworks we collected thinking of the artist who I wanted to meet for once. We are waiting for your visit.

Mizoe Art Gallery is going to exhibit in VOLTA NY 2020 which has been held in New York since 2008.
We will be exhibiting works by two Japanese artists: Tamie OKUYAMA and Kenpei YUNDE.

Tamie OKUYAMA’s specialty is the work of “sun”.
With her distinctive sight toward the life and nature mystery, she combines her sense and technique into the extraordinary and deep screen.
You surely cannot take your eyes off from her mysterious works, which is also full of love.
Kenpei YUNDE focuses on the “soil”, which is usually under our feet, to catch and express the base of the human activity.
His specific painting style, repeating the process of glazing and scraping more than 50 layers through one year, shows us the dynamic and heartwarming world in his painting.

The works of two people whose aesthetic sense unique to the Japanese pulsates.
We look forward to your visit at booth # 2.13 of "VOLTA NEW YORK 2020".

▼Opening reception
November 2 [Sat] 5pm start

If it is the first time you see the artworks of Keisei Kobayashi, you may be surprised to know they were created by wood print. The extremely minute depiction goes beyond the general idea of a wood print.
〈Wood Engraving〉The technique invented in the late 18th century which cut tough wood in round slices (cross-section) and curve it by a burin and a chisel to make further elaborate and exquisite expressions. Although I understand the explanation in my head, the artwork in front of my eyes does not stop surprising and making me stare in every corner of the world that is both decadent and paradisiacal.
Betraying the common knowledge that wood engraving is confined within small size, his artworks reach the maximum of 3M which was enabled by trial and error to enlarge the technique succeeded since the 1700s.

This exhibition will display self-selected artworks looking back at his art practices. The display configuration including large artworks will be worth seeing. It is great pleasure that we can hold a display to show the whole picture of Keisei Kobayashi's artworks in here at Fukuoka. You will not regret coming.

Keisei KOBAYASHI/Born in Shimane Prefecture in 1944, lives in Tokyo. A professor emeritus at Tama Art University. Purchased by the Agency for Cultural Affairs as an excellent artwork (Time for Ressurection S62・8-). Bronze award at Beijing International Print Biennial. The Yamaguchi Gen Grand Prize. "Leonardo Sciascia, amateur d’estampes” Prize. The Medal with Purple Ribbon from the Japanese Government.
Many of his artworks are collected by institutions including the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo and International Centre of Graphic Arts at Ljubljana.
