Ainu Woodcarver Fujito Takeki: Envoy of the Forest
Mayumi Yamase Exhibition
Artist Mayumi Yamase, who is also editor of Subsequence magazine, has opened a solo exhibition at Gallery & Books on the 3rd floor of IDEÉ SHOP Jiyugaoka.
As the title of the exhibition suggests, the paintings are a delightful combination of abstract forms that seem to grow and expand, stretch and shrink, and have a sense of mass that seems to shift at any moment. Please don’t miss them!
Period: August 6 (Fri) – September 6 (Mon), 2021
Location: IDEÉ SHOP Jiyugaoka
