poster for Yu Hanafusa “Garden Making”

Ends in 11 days

The title of this exhibition, “Garden Making,” is a theme Hanabusa has been working on in recent years in which she attempts to turn the exhibition space itself into an imaginary space by laying out her paintings in the same way a gardener designs a garden. In this project, which started with an exhibition in the Japanese-style Hall at the Kyoto Art Center after the artist’s return to Japan from a residency in Thailand, Hanabusa reconfigures the indoor exhibition space while taking into consideration the orientation and height of the viewer’s perspective when arrangingtableaus depicting outdoor objects, such as stone lanterns and garden plants. Here, Hanabusa presents some fifteen new paintings, including works modeled on the arrangement of plants on the premises of the ancient Futaiji Temple in Nara, flower offerings (kyoka),that have as their motif the floral decorations given as offerings at Buddhist temples in Thailand, and the Wakwak Treeseries she began in the early 2000s that is based on legends of trees that bear people instead of fruit. This group of densely-executed works, in which the artist has carefully applied coat after coat of paint, one brush stroke at a time, conveys the sense of powerful, tenacious life that is produced by nature and by the accumulation of day-to-day human activity. This is Hanabusa’s first solo exhibition at Art-U room in four years.
