This event has ended.
Naoto Sunohara has been presenting work ever since he was a graduate student at Tohoku University of Art and Design. This year, he gained nationwide acclaim and became a featured artist. He has been recommended for two exhibitions, VOCA, a gateway to success for young artists, and Nikkei Nihonga Award (for Japanese painting), encouraging young to mid-career talent. His work depicts mountain landscapes, based on his own experiences of mountaineering and scaling, and on sketches made during those excursions.
The works exhibited in this show reveal Sunohara transferring to, and impressing on the picture plane, item by item, the conclusions he has derived from pondering what mountain means to him. His elements mingle and overlap, forming highly original microcosms. Looking long and closely at any of these works is to be taken into a landscape entirely separate from our everyday lives.
