Nov. 25 - Feb. 06, 2011 MIWA OGASAWARA


We present her paintings depicted from 2006 to 2010. The exhibition mainly shows the paintings of indoor scenes with her impressive contrast of light and shadow as well as new works.

She is highly acclaimed in Europe and her works are already placed in important museums and collections, including Pompidou Centre in Paris and The Burger Collection in Switzerland.

Her reflections on light and shadow look connected with her theme, the shift between truth and reality. Gentle light from a window appear by shadow, a chair and a sofa located in subtle light and shadow, stairs leading us to shadow. Those paintings are well harmonized with grey tone; but void of any sense of energy.

It will be our pleasure for visitors to feel her world through her paintings.
