Jean-Marie Haessle “Trois morceaux en forme de poire (Homage a Satie)”
This event has ended.
Uchigo and Shizimi Gallery is coming to Jimbocho, Tokyo in this June! The inaugural show presents Jean-Marie Haessle’s solo exhibition, beginning on June 26th.
Haessle is a French painter, currently living in Soho, New York. He became interested in Japanese art for its close relationship with impressionism. He became an admirer of Japanese art when he saw Ukiyo-e by Hiroshige Ando for the first time in Paris. Since then, he has created many works with bold composition and bright colors inspired by Ukiyo-e prints. His colorful abstract paintings use strong and quick brush strokes as if to see him grabbing what he felt instantaneously and wouldn’t let them go.
Going through several transitional periods, he broke free from preconceptions or stereotypes that urged him to draw “something” and began to reconstruct his works. By interacting with various layers of colors and elements and sometimes by letting himself go with the flow of arbitrary action, he continues to create new works.
This exhibition will simultaneously be held at Wada Garou Tokyo displaying his different artworks. It aims to provide the gallery visitors opportunities to enjoy Haessle’s various types of paintings and the harmony of colors.
from June 26, 2020 to August 01, 2020
