《 discesa 》Bronze 5.9×h 15.74in

Koji WATANABE stayed in Italy for 24 years. For most of the years, he created artworks living by the Lake Como near the border of Switzerland. I dreamily imagine how great the environment was. Currently, he works in a quiet old Japanese-style house in Karatsu as his studio which is a quiet place as well. The bronze artworks created by WATANABE are suggestive and mysterious like palaces and temples in the stories of Western countries.
"The theme is stability in an unstable society," the artist says. Life abroad for many years would not have been as graceful experience as we think.
We will exhibit approximately 20 artworks focusing on the artworks created in Italy. Please feel the wind of Italy brought by the artworks of Koji WATANABE.

Did you see Gyoji Nomiyama Exhibition After 100 Years that was held at Taichi Sakaiya Memorial Aizumi Art Museum of Tokyo University of the Arts at the beginning of this year? A number of artworks which were mostly painted in this one year have overflowing energy and freshness like spring. The vivid colors and energetic free brushstrokes always make me feel the existence of life in his paintings.
"I want to express something that firmly settles in me." Gyoji NOMIYAMA keeps on painting pursuing something he still cannot attain.
This exhibition will show his artworks of each period including the postwar years, the time he stayed in Europe, and the years after he returned to Japan. You will grasp the current activity of Gyoji NOMIYAMA who still continues to evolve after turning 101 years old. We are waiting for your visit.

《Blessing Boat》2022 Mixed media 39.37×28.62 in



《Voice of an Angel》2021 Picture painted on glass 2.83×4.6 in

There are children, animals, bird-like creatures, houses, mountains, stars, and the landscape of the earth in the paintings of Ben Oga. Although they are obviously imagination by the artist, I cannot avoid feeling a sense of deja vu. There are stories including various emotions that take the audience into the world of the paintings to make them become a part of the story. Repeatedly coated paints like fabric will evoke thoughts, memories, hope for the future, and the prayers of happiness that everyone has in common. We would like you to enjoy the painted world of Oga in your own way.

《Happy morning, under the apple tree》 2022 Oil on canvas

"There is soil at everyone's feet. What is true happiness in modern times in which we cannot recognize this obvious fact? I would like to express the importance of feeling the origin of our life through the thick surface by repeated brushstrokes of oil paint," said Kenpei YUNDE. This is the second solo exhibition of YUNDE since the corona outbreak started. YUNDE completely gave himself over painting during the time which consolidated his passion and belief for painting. As usual, or more thoroughly, more than 50 layers of paint were applied to create paintings each of which takes him one year. Many people are fascinated by the small happiness painted on them.
We would like you to have a look at the painter's way of living. We are waiting for your visit to our gallery. Kazunobu Abe, Mizoe Art Gallery

[Tokyo] Isamu Kojima exhibition - Poem of the Earth - May.14(Sat) - May.29(Sun), 2022

"EARTH・Butterfly in the Forest" 2022  Mixed media 35.43x35.43 in

Isamu Kojima exhibition - Poem of the Earth
May.14(Sat) - May.29(Sun), 2022

10:00am-6:00pm (Open every day during the event)
Venue: MIZOE ART GALLERY TOKYO
The artist will be at the gallery on May 14th (Sat), 15th(Sun).

When I look at the artworks of Isamu KOJIMA keeping the word "Earth" in mind, I get convinced that those paintings were inspired by the scenery of the Brazilian land where he had lived viewed from the sky. Sometimes, the Morpho butterfly, a butterfly living in the Brazilian forest appears on the artworks as if it symbolizes life. Although the vivid colors have an atmosphere of Latin, the artworks are made of layers of various materials such as thick paper, cloth, Japanese traditional paper, and marble. The flat artworks made of Japanese material and texture that were carefully selected show the unique expression through a process of trial and error by KOJIMA who constantly put him in the world.
There will be approximately 25 works including large artworks. Please look forward to the exhibition.
