This event has ended.

Marking Funo’s eighth solo presentation with the gallery, the exhibition features a selection of new paintings. Nana Funo’s works present a unique, multi-layered view of the world, conceived through interweaving subjects and landscapes from her own imagination and stories she had indulged in since her childhood with richly nuanced and variegated artistic touches. In the works presented in this exhibition, Funo challenges herself to create new lines and brushstrokes by overlapping and repainting her motifs, and further melting and scraping into the layers of applied paint. Things that at a glance appear hidden and belonging to different layers, in fact delicately relate to one another within the elegant pictorial plane. The exhibition also includes works that appropriate a more abstract means of expression, as for example observed in her work ‘Key’.
