Asian Art in London 2022
“For the past four years, Kamal & I have spoken regularly about her collection – almost every conversation includes a short dialogue on our longing and nostalgia for Japan. Whilst our longing continues, our artistic experience is slightly replenished through a rediscovery of her collection of prints, paintings and works of art. For the first time in almost five years we are delighted to be once again opening our doors to show case a curated selection of Japanese masterpieces in an exhibition titled: Japanese Modernism: colour, technique, abstraction.”
From 18th October – 3rd November we invite friends, family and collectors old and new to experience the works of Toko Shinoda, Clifton Karhu and Daniel Kelly. With works spanning the past seventy years, we look at the stories of colour, namely Shinoda’s use of ming red, paired with Karhu’s sweeping red noren. Fascinating lithographic, silkscreen and mixed media printing techniques in Taniguchi Shigeru’s 1980s works – as well as harmonious abstraction in the prints of sosaku-hanga pioneer, Rikio Takahashi.
Combined, the collection of artworks tell stories of an evolving art scene that saw Japanese artists take the world stage by storm. Pioneering movements and monumental scale work hand in hand with centuries of tradition and heritage.
At the centre of the exhibition sits Toko Shinoda’s two-metre hand painted Japanese screen, and several paintings.
Visitors are kindly invited to contact us directly to arrange a viewing of the exhibition.
