Kyoko Murase “Sapphire”
This event has ended.
Taka Ishii Gallery is pleased to announce “Sapphire”, our solo exhibition with Kyoko Murase featuring her latest works. The exhibition features a selection of Murase’s newest paintings as well as a number of new drawings following the large scale exhibition of her works, “Fluttering far away” (Toyota Municipal Museum of Art, 2010).
As an artist who represents contemporary Japanese painting, Murase has continued to participate extensively in group exhibitions held in various locations throughout Japan. The most prominent of these exhibitions is the “Garden of Painting/Japanese Art of the 00s” (The National Museum of Art, Osaka, 2010), an exhibition which reflects upon painting of the 2000s.
The exhibition presents Murase’s latest works, which gesture towards a new realm of painting in the wake of “Fluttering far away” and “One Hundred Millennium Cave,” a wall drawing created using the cave as a motif.
The artist will be visiting Japan from Germany for the opening reception of the exhibition.
