My work "Simple Things"

Other artists' works


Supported by The Japan Foundation

I showed my new work "Simple Things" at Group Show "AVANT}{GARDEN" curated by Kio Griffith, presented by [TYPE],  at ARENA 1, Santa Monica Art Studios in Santa Monica, U.S.A., from 17th April to 6th May. The all artists were Japanese who live in Japan or U.S.A.

“AVANT}{GARDEN” is part two of a two-part exhibition presented by [TYPE] at Arena 1 Gallery featuring emerging and mid-career artists. The exporation follows each artist’s creation to the observation cliff with a full view of the contemporary art garden. Beginning April 17th, each selected work in this exhibition will be carefully planted daily in a section of the gallery. As the view will change throughout the duration, repeat visits are suggested.
