Two Nakamura Kengo exhibition [Megumi Ogita gallery]

[quiet knee ☆ cricket] December 10, 2018 14:00


In 2, Ginza, art gallery in the first floor of Ginza Otsuka Building basement, Megumi Ogita gallery, the fifth and two private exhibitions called "modishness lovers" exhibition and "JAPANS" exhibition of Mr. Nakamura Kengo that it is are held at the same time since April, 2015 from Tuesday, December 4 to Saturday, December 22


As for the time, on Sunday and Monday, holiday, we are absent in from 11:00 to 19:00.


When work of Nakamura was displayed before by these gallery, I saw, and, besides, we had an impression that it was fresh at all and silhouette of balloon and character of comics was unique in work that floor plans of one-room apartment were done by motif, and strongly remained in memory


It is different exhibition of atmosphere that "to challenge the collected studies of theme that wrestled through Nakamura reason to think about "modishness" through "art" of daringly this chain of islands from Meiji in year in the Heisei last for 150 years, Don Quixote-like attempt until now", and this exhibition seemed to be done to be in HP of gallery and is surely until now


In university, graduate school, he/she seemed to learn Japanese painting, and Nakamura reconstitutes modern painting after the Impressionists around Europe by "modern lovers" exhibition, and work described in process painting over in "mineral colors" which are color of Japanese painting by print, the top is displayed by Japanese paper

When it is like Western painting and is like Japanese painting which is not Western painting and says with mysterious work, word that are not Japanese painting, is it "modishness" which after all author says to?

Anyway, it is many attractive works which we want to see all the time


It is time busy all the time of December, it may be good to spend unhurried time in quiet gallery under the ground on the first floor.

We recommend that you drop in by all means and look at


In addition, about photography in gallery, we had the consent and had you explain held purposes at this two exhibition same time

Thank you
