10am – 6pm *Open every day during the exhibition.

▼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.

He has been repeatedly putting and shaving oil on canvas to make matières over a year.We feel the deep beauty from the simple motif on the thick matières of his painting. In contrast, all his drawings express his respiration and realistic feelings with the improvisational sense of speed.

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.
