AG Gallery is pleased to announce our new exhibition with Sirikul Pattachote, Flower Offerings, opening on Sunday, September 1, 2018. Pattachote is a Thai artist living and working in New York City. In May 2016, Pattachote had her solo exhibition Things Are Actually Not Falling Apart with AG Gallery featuring her flower and female portrait paintings. In the exhibition we focused on finding peaceful unity within the laws of living a life through the artist’s original watercolor paintings and drawings. Flower Offerings is her second solo exhibition at AG Gallery.

Symbolic offerings are common practice made in Buddhism for multiple reasons but mainly the fundamental importance of offering for the offerer is the act and mind of the offering itself, more than the value of object that is offered. Such material offerings typically involve objects such as food, fruits, water or drinks, incense, candles, and flowers. Although it is visible material that is offered, the main focus of such practice is the mental state of and the action of offering, the material is therefore usually something simple and often from the nature. In this exhibition Pattachote and gallery attempt to create the whole experience of the offerings utilizing visual art and sound. It is possible to send out positive energy from one to others; an energy that receivers can convert to an encouragement for anything that they might need.

Pattachote is one of the artists who has been utilizing painting as a part of her meditative practice. From the material she uses, such as paper, to the medium she uses, such as inks and paints that she prepares for her work, to the subject of her works which is cut flowers mostly prepared and offered to the buddha and her beloved people. In this exhibition the artist also focuses on the meanings of the flowers which she selects and paints in her work.

Please join the Flower Offerings and unite the installation as a receiver. You are all you cordially invited to experience the positive energy of unconditional offerings.

Rica TASAKA | Embroidered NY

Rica TASAKA

Embroidered NY

On View: August 18, 2017 ~ August 24, 2017

AG Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition with artist Rica TASAKA “Embroidered NY”, openng on August 18, 2017.

Rica TASAKA is a Japanese artist who explores washi as an art medium like oil paints and clay. Tasaka’s works are made completely with only embroider and Washi-paper collage. Tasaka collects images from around the world. Based on snapshots pictures she shot in cities she visited she creates her washi-art. Tasaka explores everyday subjects in her work that make us rediscover joys and happiness that lives in small parts of our daily life in a specific location of the world.

In this exhibition Tasaka created NYC landscape series using pictures and sketches of her visit to NYC last year as inspirations. We suggest gallery visitors to get extra closer to artworks this time, and see the details. They look like illustrations at a first sight but actually collaged paper and stitchings that make those “snapshot-like” pictures.

Exhibition is on view through August 24th, 2017. Please visit the gallery and enjoy how NYC was like to a visiting artist, you may discover something similar or different from what you know.

Statement and Message from Artist

 I was born and raised in the bustling, food-centered city of Osaka, Japan in 1974.
 I spent my childhood creating unique works of art using everyday items I found around the house. Later in life, I entered the Life Design Department at the Kyoto Saga University of Arts.
 While at the university, I designed furniture and various other household goods. After graduating in 1995, I worked at a company as an interior designer.
 During that time I started working on my own art and in the process found traditional Japanese washi paper which totally changed my work. Washi paper has special textures that I can’t express using just paint. The texture and the hand-torn edges of the paper absorb and dissipate the ink in a way that makes each piece unique. I also embroider directly on the washi paper to give my work a three-dimensional texture and a visual rhythm as a single piece of art based on everyday life.
 I resigned from my company in 2000 and became a freelance illustrator. I did illustrations in various media, as I actively worked on creating solo exhibitions. In 2015, I held my first public exhibition at the Karuizawa New Art Museum in Nagano. Then I had my first exhibit in Brooklyn, New York.

 Coming to New York in 2017, greatly expanded my experience and style. The overwhelming energy of the city exhibited in its food, people, and lively culture caused me to explore a sense of movement and irregularity in my art. This has added power in addition to the sense of healing which was present in my previous work.

 I hope that whoever sees my art feels like they have made a small discovery in their lives and it causes them to smile. That’s what keeps me going as an artist.
