This event has ended.

As the second part of a series of events and exhibitions celebrating the opening of the new arts centre 3331 Arts Chiyoda (launched on 14th March 2010 - Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo) we are pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Sasaki Kosei entitled Total Affirmation : OK.PERFECT.YES.

Sasaki Kosei is an artist who has developed an artistic philosophy through participation in the pioneering avant-garde movement of the 1960s "Jack No Kai" and later pursuing an engagement in counter culture in New York in the 1970s. On returning to Japan in the 1980s he severed his ties with the art world but in recent years has begun to paint again. Currently, in the studio he built himself in Akagisanroku, Gunma, Sasaki can be found vigorously wielding a brush.

This exhibition brings together 50 of Sasaki Kosei's giant abstract paintings to reveal the ideology of the affirmation "Ok. Perfect. Yes" and to bring to the fore an aspect of postwar art history which has until now been difficult to encounter. For Sasaki, who is 82 years old this year, this exhibition is a fresh debut, in which he presents new work for the first time in 40 years.

しがらみや体裁なんかをストイックにそぎ落としたその先にある、人に作品を見せたいという欲求。有機体の連続で構成された抽象画からは、そんな作家のピュアな魂を感じることができます。http://ameblo.jp/jinjin0116/entry-10525958151.html
