〇The days artist in the gallery 3/17,18,19

Itoshima is a city located in Fukuoka Prefecture, which is surrounded by sea and mountains, and also nurturing rich nature. Takeshi’s art works are created in an old blacksmith’s shop as renovated to be his atelier there. The portrait paintings fill with sorrow and the still-life paintings of winter melon, which is full of energy, are painted on the hand-made panels or nature wood boards. The pleasant objects are made from the driftwood or waste lumbers that were found by the artist while he was taking a walk along the beach. Full of poetic sentiment and tenderness, Takeshi Wei’s art works’ world exists between the life of an art painter and a human itself. Please enjoy the exhibition.

Lost-wax casting is a traditional technique from the ancient of producing a bronze sculpture that makes a prototype by wax directly. The impression of this kind of technique and material helps me a lot to make the decision of my products' figure. While「The real thrill of the sculpture is the strength of the mass.」I have been working on a special representation that can be lost-wax casting method. The presence of the intangibles, such as the wind or clouds, the sky or space, what are wrapped us isn't the nature of nature? What I exactly wanted to  express is the view of life in my work, while looking through the 「Intangible」that meets the space. (Ko MIYAZAKI)

[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.

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.

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.
