Two solo exhibitions were successfully completed.
The solo exhibition “~Melody~” held at Gallery MENIO from October 3 to 15 and the solo exhibition “~Flowers~” held at Esplanade Gallery from October 26 to 31 have both ended successfully. Thank you very much to everyone who came to see the exhibition and to those who cared about us even though they could not come to the venue. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks to the fact that more than half of the audience were first-time visitors, we believe we were able to introduce a little bit of a new world to everyone. Unfortunately, not many people filled out their names in the guest book, and we regret that we cannot contact them directly for the next time. However, I am sure that this will lead to future events.
The solo exhibition at Gallery MENIO was accompanied by a concert featuring the piano piece that inspired the cover painting, and more than 50 guests enjoyed sharing the world view of the work with the artist.
Many visitors commented that the paintings they saw before the concert and the ones they saw after the concert were so different that it was hard to believe they were the same. I was so impressed that I couldn’t believe they were the same. The pieces of paper really look like notes. We were very happy to receive such a positive feedback from the audience.
The art book produced for the solo exhibition at Gallery MENIO features Musica Nova’s cover painting, and by scanning the QR code on each page, you can actually enjoy the pianist’s performance.

The solo exhibition that began on the 26th was held in Shikemichi, an area that still retains its old townscape. The Esplanade Gallery, which served as the venue for the exhibition, is also a 150-year-old building.
Esplanade Gallery’s theme for 2017 is centered around the theme of “Wandering Flower (mikka)”. The theme of this series, inspired by a favorite TV personality, is “the duality of human nature. This is the reason why a single work is represented in color and black and white. The latest work is a further fusion of the two.
I feel that the Wandering Flower series I am currently working on is entering a new phase. For the time being, I will continue to look at this theme, work on it, and hope to eventually sublimate it into something I want to express. I hope that you will continue to look at my paper quilts as they change little by little.
