The exhibition will feature new original works combining poetry and photography called <Lyrical Photo>.
When you put on perfume, after a short time, you will smell the 'last note'.
The 'last note' is said to be the most memorable.
This stage is said to be the most memorable,
lingering and at the same time the essence of the fragrance.
It is like when you suddenly encounter a nostalgic fragrance.
A lingering sensation that stays with you forever,
I hope that one day you will be able to experience it through my work.
On the occasion of my first solo exhibition, with all my heart.

Thinking to the Future
27 MAY-2 JUNE 2023
An Aboriginal proverb recites the following words: "Take care of the Earth and the Earth will take
care of you, destroy the Earth and the Earth will destroy you", an important thought from which to
start for careful reflection. Taking care of the environment is a topic of great importance and
extremely current, how can we talk about sustainability and how can we be sustainable? Surely
the first step to protect the environment is to know it and get as close as possible to Nature, how
often do we come into contact with it? The selected artists will have the opportunity to get closer
to the elements of nature, representing them as they see fit and how they interpret the
environment, choosing the tools they deem best. Colors and materials, whatever they are, will be
the protagonists together with the ideas of each artist. An exhibition that pays attention to
sustainability, to the sensitivity of the artists and the observer, where art becomes the starting
point for careful reflection.
An exhibition born to reflect on the climate emergency, the role that each of us plays to contribute
to a functional change in which every single individual in his small way can decide to implement.
Raise awareness through culture, artists and their art to cultural change.
In this exhibition we talk about sustainability, environment, development through the works of
some selected artists who through their artistic language are able to make us go through a
reunion with the elements of nature, with the vibrations that arise within us when we feel and
perceive the language of each individual artist, sensations that take us back to our origins, but
which allow us to reconnect with the world by creating progress, evolution, empathy between
Art plays a fundamental role in all of this because it helps to reflect, to dialogue, to communicate
through new approaches, different languages, meanings and perhaps to offer us a slightly greener
internal and external world in which to live.

Gen Matsumoto Solo exhibition
I love the alleys and backstreets of old European towns, and I paint these memorable scenes.
Pitted and blackened brick walls, old street lamps, dark green shutters, stone buildings that have gained presence over time, etc. I like to walk along these deserted alleys. I walk alone, thinking about the lives, religions, pastimes and conflicts of people hundreds of years ago, which I cannot experience in Japan. It is truly an enchanting bliss for me.
The corona has prevented me from travelling for the last three years. Every day when I paint, I recall the scenes and atmosphere of the time and I feel like getting into the painting.
My research trips are literally poor trips. I book cheap airline tickets and cheap accommodation and go out with just one bag. I only have one guidebook, Chikyu-no Arukikata. So I made countless mistakes, such as taking the wrong train or forgetting to print out my train ticket. I'll tell you about one of those mistakes when I went to Genoa.
I had eaten a hearty breakfast at the hotel that day, and perhaps because of that, I didn't have much of an appetite even after midday. However, I went into a nearby bar to have a quick salad while I was using the toilet. I ordered a green salad and a drink without looking at the menu, pretending to be a seasoned traveller. I looked again at the customers around me and saw a young woman quietly eating what looked like a salad from a large plate the size of a washbasin. I thought there was no way the same thing would come, but it did. It was exactly the size of a washbasin. A large serving of lettuce, three or four tomatoes, another large serving of macaroni salad and a heap of sweetcorn. In addition, there were six pieces of mozzarella cheese the size of satsuma fries on top. I was overwhelmed. If it were in Japan, there would be enough for three or four people. The Italians must be terrifying, because one woman could eat this all by herself. And this was when I didn't have much of an appetite. But I felt bad about leaving it behind, so I did my best to eat it, until halfway through. But even though I ate and ate, it didn't seem to decrease. In the end, I ate about half and gave up. At the cash register, I made an excuse like "I have a small stomach..." and paid early and came out.
I painted the enchanting scenes I felt in my own way with watercolours.
This time, 22 paintings of alleyways and backstreets in various parts of Italy and Paris will be exhibited.

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.
Song of Life vol.7 Yoshimori Kataoka solo exhibition
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.

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.
