Erina Matsui "One-Touch Time Machine"
This event has ended.
We are pleased to announce Erina Matsui’s solo exhibition One-touch time machiiiine! from April 3rd to May 1st 2010.
Two and a half years since her last solo exhibition in Japan, Matsui will present a comprehensive and spectacular view of her new works including a painting on fusuma (sliding doors) titled “MEKARA UROKO de MEDETAI!” shown in her graduation exhibition of the Tokyo University of the Arts (Graduate School of Fine Arts), small toy-like objects resembling "daruma" (tumbling dolls than never fall down), and documentary pictures of an ongoing performance since 2007 called “It can go anywhere” that takes place around the world.
All of Matsui’s works are self-portraits. Shockingly deformed expressions, numerous characters scattered around the canvas, and realistic presentations of a glittering cosmos and oceans in the background of her painting attract us and instantly take us back to a childhood world of infinite imagination.
The comical facial expressions and well-known characters in her paintings capture the viewer's attention and prompt conversation, which Matsui considers to be very important. Matsui’s self-portraits filled with innocence and simplicity seek to implicate not only the audience in the art community, but also the entire society we live in.
From 2010-04-03 To 2010-05-01
Reception For The Artist on 2010-04-03 from 18:00 to 20:00
