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
Now showing at AG Gallery: an installation by Japanese glass-sculptor artist Takao Sakata. This exhibition makes his 7th exhibition at AG Gallery. Sakata considers himself a unique glass work artist in Japan. For his exhibitions at AG Gallery, he has been challenging the norms that other glass-sculptors follow to sell their glass art, or to be accepted as good glass-sculptors. This year as well he presents his work with a strong passion to breakthrough the conventionality of current “glass art”, as well as challenge the audience with a theme that non-american people may avoid speaking up about, or that people in America might be offended by if an outsider were to speak up about it.
Please make sure to visit AG Gallery to be a part of the audience for his installation. The “Love and Tears of Donald Trump” by Takao Sakata is on view until August 17th.
Lives/works in Shiga Prefecture, Japan
Graduated From Tokyo Glass Art Institute
