Winter Blink

greeting

Gallery Kujaku is a gallery that has been open for a long time in Ginza and recently moved to Kyobashi.
Recently, many of my works are black, but since the small black is weak, I added works using multiple colors in addition to red to make it lively and gorgeous. Thank you for the understanding and cooperation of the President of Gallery Kujaku, which is the first time to hold a small work exhibition. I would like to thank everyone for visiting.

September 2019

"driving force" Anxiety, anger, sorrow. All emotions that fog my mind were driving force to tomorrow.

"red fruits" When my wish is far away I thought I wanted to get it as soon as possible. When I approached what I wanted, I wondered if it would be suitable for me.

"practice to know the real thing " There were two kinds of happiness. One is a fake which fades quickly. Another one is a real thing which keeps shining.

Hours / 11: 00-18: 00 * From 13:00 on the first day
Until 16:00 on the last day


The theme of Yoshiimori Kataoka's work is various "questions" and "awareness" that he encounters in his life. He calls them "Song of Life" and makes them the series titles of his solo exhibitions and art books. The painting materials he uses are mainly crayons. Colors are layered on top of each other, scratches are made on top of them, and the colors are layered again to give shape to the feelings. It also features a short poem that serves as a concept. He combines pictures and poetry into one piece.

In this exhibition, which will be the 7th solo exhibition in Tokyo, 23 works (planned) created under the theme of "searching for the true identity of happiness" will be exhibited. What is "happiness"? How can we get it? Many people want it, but they may not know what it really is. In this exhibition, works expressing such complicated "fragments" of "happiness" will be lined up. What is the "identity of happiness" that gradually emerges as you watch it?

In our life, which passes by quickly, our heart is lost. Thinking about "what is happiness for me" and knowing it again without comparing it with others should be the basis for enriching life. I look forward to your visit in the refreshing air of May when the greenery deepens.

『shape of happiness』
Everyone competed each other to get happiness. Though my happiness and your happiness were different.

"various containers"
All given things were the same. These were decided to the happy and unhappy by the from of the container.

"How to expand the world"
My world expanded by recognizing that I was ignorant.

The theme of Rimori Kataoka's work is various "questions" and "awareness" that are encountered in life. He calls them "Song of Life" and make them the series titles of solo exhibitions and art books. The painting materials he uses are mainly crayons. Colors are layered on top of each other, scratches are made on top of them, and the colors are layered again to give shape to the feelings. It also features a short poem that serves as a concept. The picture and poetry are combined into one work.

In this exhibition, which is the 10th year since the first solo exhibition, more than 35 works including new works, initial works, and drawings will be exhibited at once with the sub-theme of "growth". You can get a glimpse of the transition of expressions and thoughts. Even so, the end of March is the time to graduate from the environment and way of thinking so far and think about a new self. "How should I live in the future?" "What kind of person do you want to be?" ... I would appreciate it if you could have a moment to ask yourself such questions in front of the work.
