Exchange of energy between people is an important concept in Sangsun BAE's works. she  discovered the invisible and amorphous "Aura" in the energy between people that is constantly changing its vector and force.

Unlike the sharp, ripping lines we see more in western arts, BAE's elegant lines are more Oriental and express the merging of the internal and external worlds.
Simple and refined lines she creates without relying on the effects of color combinations or innovative approach take us back to the true essence of basic drawings.

In her new works for this exhibition, rings drawn on jet black velvet material float and overwrap, as though trapping us in the world of perpetual intertwining (Over & Over).

Human interactions are becoming less and less close in the modern society. But BAE's art works remind us the value and revitalizing energy that "interactions with others" can bring. We hope that you can visit "Over & Over" and enjoy BAE's new works.

Imura art gallery tokyo proudly presents the solo exhibition of Ai Ryumon,"Kiku to Sakana (Chrysanthemum and Fish)."

Through her artwork, Ai Ryumon (born in Okayama in 1984) depicts her own view of the world by incorporating her modernized sense about our daily life into the images of formalized Japanese tradi- tional culture. Ryumon's art works and her precise and unconventional images challenge the fuzzy sense of the world that we hold as we live in modern Japan.

This exhibition entitled"Kiku to Sakana (Chrysanthemum and Fish)"is the first solo exhibition of Ai Ryumon to be held at imura art gallery tokyo.
Her works serve as homage to the famous book,"Kiku to Katana (The Chrysanthemum and the Sword: Patterns of Japanese) by the late Ruth Benedict, an anthropologist and a scholar of Japanese studies. These pieces will be exhibited with the"sight-seeing series"initiated in 2010, where Ryumaon, who currently lives in Japan, depicts Japan as seen from an outsider's view through her deep perception of our life and culture and using her witty and creative touch of art.

We will be looking forward to your visit to Ai Ryumon's first solo exhibition in four years. 

Imura art gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Sae Miyoshi entitled "Flame".

Red, blue, yellow, green, pink, black and white... The oil paint of various colors applied by Sae Miyoshi onto the canvas, sometimes sensitively and sometimes abruptly, forms a forceful ensemble. In her works, Miyoshi depicts ambiguous forms that can be understood both as figurative and abstractive, such as curved lines, that are reminding of internal organs expanding themselves on the colourful surface of the canvas. The artist captures on the canvas, an untold feeling, the images that she has kept in herself since childhood.  

"It is hardly possible to tell my own feelings to others because they become something different once they are put into words. I feel like, once finished, the works are just like another me.", she explained.

Miyoshi gets the inspiration from negative emotions such as anxiety or discomfort in most cases. The works seem to picture a chaotic world at first glance, but they possess something more, an innocence that comes from the pure internality of the artists mental images and that makes a strong visual impression.

Miyoshi has given the title "Flame" to this exhibition, intending to unify vitality, energy, the life, origin and the others into this simple word.
