[Fukuoka]Yoko MITSUYUKI Exhibition「Reproduce」Friday, November 3 – Sunday, November 19, 2017

[Sunshine―A] F100 Oil・Acrylic 2017

○Openning Reception starts at 5pm on Friday, November 3.
When we talk about Ms. Yoko MITSUYUKI, what immediately comes to our mind is the series of [BLUE]. She worked on abstract paintings with a sense of coolness, which imaged the water of her birthplace YANAGAWA for a long term. This time, the image was renewed and colorful new paintings will be exhibited in our gallery. Just as she named the exhibition as[Reproduce], we can find an enthusiasm to take another new step as a painter from Ms. Yoko MITSUYUKI. Actually, she celebrated the 50th anniversary of her painting career last year, then retired from Kyushu Sangyo University this year, and also quit the part of guidance for backwards to make a new life of her creating road. It is admirable of her attitude that she continues to challenge new expressions instead of complying with the prosperous achievements. Please enjoy the new world of Yoko MITSUYUKI, born from extraordinary sense of color and expression.

[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.

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.
