Yoichiro Ito Exhibition "NEWFACE 2022"

10.15 sat - 10.30 sun 2022

 

This exhibition will be the latest works in the "NEWFACE" series, which can be called a lifework that has continued since the first solo exhibition.

A style that captures the individuality and expression that emerges from the painting itself by layering layers of drawing and scraping, erasing and drawing.

The colors and lines that I have chosen to guide me, and the colors and shapes that emerge from the accumulation of work based on my intuition, can be called a metaphor for the accumulation of joy and error in daily life, and the current location of people and history.

 

 

 

ABOUT ARTIST

Yoichiro Ito

 

Born in Gifu Prefecture in 1970.

He started his musical activities with a sampling-based style while he was a student at Tama Art University.

Natural Essence, AKAKAGE, etc.

He has released a number of Produce, Remix works, and DJ MIX CDs under his own name both in Japan and overseas.

On the other hand, the painting that suddenly woke up around the fall of 2018 has continued to draw his work ever since.

At the end of 2019, his first solo exhibition NEW FACE was held at Harajuku kit gallery and received high acclaim.

He continues to create his works with his unique style of composing and painting at the same time.

At the "Tiny Art Shop Exhibition" (Mishuku Kongtong) held in August this year, almost all of his exhibited works were sold out, and his career in the painting industry is also accumulating.

In terms of music, this fall (11/9), AKAKAGE will release a 7-inch album "Onna ni Natte Naoshiyo/Moonlight" (delivered on 10/19), a project with Carmela, Nakano Aya, and Robo Sora. Next year, a movie in which he participated as a painter in the play will be released, and many projects are underway.

 

Yuina Wada Exhibition "Healthy Body"

9.17 sat - 10.9 sun 2022

 

Now I'm in front of a person who has critically ill, then I think anything else which I had been wondering is not important.

Because I cannot tell him/her any topic how to live.

For him/her, how to live is just if medical will be succeeded. Now.

I feel there is nothing if I tell anyone any topic what doesn't reach him/her who is in front of me.

 

I wrote "in front of me" but that's figurative expression.

In reality, there is a wall in front of me. There is the person beyond that.

 

Physical illness lives in one person.

As you know, "Infection prevention" is done by emphasizing that each person has each body.

Make a wall between us and don’t see each other. Until he/she will get well.

Really Lonely

But no choice, loneliness is inferior to physical illness.

If I am busy feeling lonely, that's probably why I have "Healthy Body".

 

After all, I am healthy and Now I just see the wall and believe that he/she is alive beyond that.

 

 

 

Yasuhiro Tsutsumi, Masakiyo Hamasaki exhibition
"As it is."

7.23 sat - 8.14 sun 2022



ABOUT ARTISTS

Yasuhiro Tsutsumi

Born in 1967.
I live in Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka Prefecture.
My art shifted from concrete to abstract expression from 2008.
I start by layering colors.
Overlapping colors trigger my thoughts and lead to memories.
If the piece doesn’ t sync with what I see in my head, I scrape the unmatching colors off. I repeat this simple act silently. Then suddenly, something never seen before appears. Like these pieces that seemingly come into being on their own,
unduplicatable things will naturally manifest over long periods of time.
The pieces are reflections of fragments in my memory and you can almost touch it.

Masakiyo Hamasaki

The artist draws things around his daily life as if he keeps a journal.
He applies both representational and abstract ways of drawing by using a variety of materials.

Takeshi Uchibayashi Exhibition "What I liked back then and now"

4.9 sat - 5.9 sun 2022

This exhibition is different from the usual gallery, and the works are installed in the show window facing the street.

Unlike visiting the gallery to see the exhibition, it is likely that people who pass by while commuting to work, going to school, taking a walk or shopping will happen to see it, that is, it is better to come into contact with Takeshi Uchibayashi's work for the first time.

I think it's the majority, and I'm making this kind of work.

I chose some different types of works that I could introduce myself to.

Then, I saw "old doors," "gears," "full moons," "shining stones," "galaxies in boxes," and other "things I liked back then and now."

It would be great if you could remember "then" with a small work that you suddenly saw.

Takeshi Uchibayashi

After working in various fields such as design companies, TV station props, store interiors, event / CM / magazine art, he is currently active as an artist who creates three-dimensional works from materials such as wood, metal, and electrical parts.

He presented his new objects at exhibitions on the themes of city, machine, space, memory and time, as well as at national and international art fairs.
