The gallery, led by Shintaro Maki, opened in July 2008 on the second floor of the then newly built NADiff a/p/a/r/t building in Ebisu (see this photo report by Ashley Rawlings), and was one of the few major Tokyo galleries to focus almost solely on young female artists.

Amy Fox

Amy Fox. Her story starts in 1985 just north of London in the shoemaking capital of England, Northampton. After a gap year spent in shoe town, she studied at Nottingham Trent University. She spent three years analysing various media from various left wing perspectives, resulting in a B.A in Communication Studies. Her itchy feet got the better of her, thus followed jaunts around America, Europe and Asia, finally settling in Japan. After spending six months in 100% rural Nihon, this “life enriching” experience became a little too “enriching” and she headed to the bright lights of Tokyo to find her fortune. She can now be found working on her photographic and developing skills, with work centred on everyday experiences and her toy animals, raiding rental record shops, updating her blog, sporadically studying Japanese, and making photocopied picture books. » See other writings
