Closed Today (Monday)

A solo exhibition with London-based British artist James Jarvis. Featuring a selection of new works, the exhibition marks Jarvis’ first presentation in Japan in four years since his previous showing at HHH Gallery in 2015.

In addition to a selection of drawing works that Jarvis continues to create as his daily artistic routine, this exhibition presents a new spray painting, laser-cut wooden relief, a two-dimensional work using colored acrylic panels, and a bronze sculptural work. Jarvis who states, “Drawing, for me, is a bit like breathing. It’s something I feel compelled to do,” expresses interest towards a diverse range of fields. From philosophical thinking to various languages, history, social issues, popular culture, art, architecture, and even skateboarding, Jarvis’ characters that draw inspiration from such interests, despite being extremely simple in their nature, present themselves as eloquent, comical, and ironical reflections of ourselves.

An opening reception will be held on July 20th at 18:00-20:00, attended by James Jarvis who will be traveling to Japan on this occasion.
