poster for Misaki Kawai Exhibition

This event has ended.

Both Misaki Kawai's paintings and sculptures have something inimitable about them, especially their fluorescent day-glo colors and rough surface textures created using cardboard and fabric. Although her works are often said to belong to the "heta-uma" school of Japanese art, a more appropriate English expression might be "good sense, bad technique". Her naive, seemingly innocent work is completely free of either traces of formalism or quotations and borrowings from classical painting.

いわゆる「ヘタウマ」で有名な若手作家の河井美咲の個展。

キャンバスや布などのコラージュの上に、カラフルなヘタウマ画。
個人的には好きになれないものの、こういった流れが出来ていること自体が自由で面白い。
彼女自身の言う「good sense, bad technique」が全てを表している。
