This event has ended.
Masahiro Maki Gallery is pleased to present Jonas Wood & Shio Kusaka: Pots, Plants, Sports, a two-person exhibition which focuses on prints by the American painter, Jonas Wood, and his partner, the ceramic artist Shio Kusaka, to be held for the first time in Japan. Featuring themes that appear recurrently in their work, such as pots, plants and sport scenes, the exhibition covers two floors of the gallery space and showcases twenty prints by Wood, produced between 2011 and 2017, alongside a selection of ten prints by Kusaka which take her ceramic works as their subjects. In addition to the exhibition held at the gallery, thirty works by Wood will be on view at Art Fair Tokyo 2019, from March 7th through 10th. The prints in this exhibition form a series of vividly graphical images in which the sheer flatness of the surface and the use of the same plate with varying color schemes – achievable solely through the medium of printing – further enrich the diversity of lines, forms and colors that intersect and interrupt one another. Over sixty images displayed at two locations epitomize the colorful and playful body of work by the artist duo that lies at the frontier of contemporary American Pop Art.
