Kim Myung Sik is a world-renowned artist from South Korea. When he moved to New York alone in 2000, he started the series "East Side Story" inspired by people of various races and the houses resembling matchboxes seen from a car window. House is a place that people can repose most restfully. The seemingly unified houses and races show the joy, sorrow of the people living there, and his hope for the world in which diverse races live peacefully. "East Side", the place the sun rises, became the title of the series as a symbol of hope and pray. In this exhibition celebrating his 70th birthday, we exhibit new 40 works through which he ruminated the three periods. It will not betray your expectations.

〇Gallery Talk
July 28 [Sun], 2019 2:00pm-3:30pm

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. Because of the artistic style, I could hardly imagine when he told: "I am now making a painting of Yamakasa". In addition to such works, there are also a series of flowers inspired by a painting on the ceiling of a temple. 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.

Masahito KATAYAMA / 1984 Graduated from Graduate school of Kyoto Municipal University of Arts/ '88 Stayed in U.S.A invited by Asian Cultural Council (~'89) /‘95 Stayed in U.K. as a trainee of Japanese Government Overseas Study Program for Artists (~'96)/ 2004 "Artist in Fukuoka vol.5 KATAYAMA Masahito: Membrane 2004 –Into the Forest of Perception" (Fukuoka Art Museum) / '07 Exhibited at The 3rd Changdu

Shin KAMIKAWA Exhibition; Shapes and Essays

March 16 (Sat) - 31(Sat),2019
Hours: 10am – 6pm (open every day during the exhibition)

There are always "words" on the basis of the artwork of Shin Kamikawa. He habitually takes notes of "words" that popped into his head. He makes the "shapes" based on those "words" that become the titles of his works. Similarly, the process of making "shapes" is more like creating three dimensional works than making paintings. He paints imaginary structure on a soil-colored canvas in a similar way to constructing immense architecture on the ground. In the process underlie a concept of visualizing the structure of the society that he feels as he lives.
Enjoy the overwhelmingly powerful world of Shin KAMIKAWA including "THE WALL" series which was created through reconsideration of his hometown. It is the first exhibition in Tokyo in the last three years.
