[Introduction]
Director / Scriptwriter - Shohei SHIOZAKI
About: This long film is the story of a talented painter from Nara prefecture.
Kenpei YUNDE painted all the works in the film and we can see plenty of his works.



Kenpei YUNDE is an artist to the core. I thought like this when I heard his comment for my phone-call.
he said “I can’t go out anywhere because of Corona, so I just engage in painting in the atelier. I finished much more works.”
His concepts, “From the footing, from the soil”, expresses in the specific painting style of repeating the process of glazing and scraping more than 50 layers through one year.
He says “Since this world’s value is dramatically changing, I want everyone to enjoy and feel my works. All of them have the voice of soil and put down the roots in the earth.
This is the best time for Kenpei YUNDE’s exhibition. We really look forward to seeing you in our gallery. – Kazunobu Abe, Mizoe Art Gallery

[Fukuoka] Takashi YATOJI exhibition -Portrait-, May 30th(Sat) – June 14th(Sun), 2020



Takashi YATOJI exhibition -Portrait-
May 30th(Sat) – June 14th(Sun), 2020


10:00 – 18:00 (Open every day during the event)
Venue: MIZOE ART GALLERY FKUOKA

The artist will be present on 30,31 May and 6,7,13,14 June in the gallery.
*Live painting show is going on while the days artist is there.

What the artworks by Takashi Yatouji attract us is the novel artistic style with vivid colors and lines spreading freely over images. There are both light depiction like pop-art and thick brushstroke like modern painting, in addition to both essences of abstract and figurative art. He does not compromise to find the best material to implement those effects.

He is a young and energetic artist who is highly expected by his hometown since he gained attention by being the youngest to receive the first prize at Eiten (Tagawa Museum of Art) in 2013 at the age of 22. Recently, he held a solo exhibition in Fukuoka at Okawa City Seiriki Art Museum. In this exhibition titled “Portrait”, he will perform live painting of a large work that reaches five-meter long in a reproduced atelier in the gallery space. We hope he will bring a wind full of energy to the society exhausted by the epidemic.
We are waiting for your visits. (Kazunobu Abe, Mizoe Art Gallery)

...............................

 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.

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?

Field of Now exhibition marks the 27th time this year. This exhibition is a special exhibition that is hosted only for 4 days a year to introduce young noticeable artists selected by artist dealers who belong to the youth group of our association.

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.
