Those of you who follow my adventures on the various social media websites might recall my trek to Tokyo nearly a month past, for a not-so-top secret meeting. During my time there, I was introduced to one of the more intriguing gallery spaces I’ve seen in Japan, Arts Rush. Cozy and eccentric, the space reeks with atmosphere. Think: Japanese goth (more Through the Looking Glass, less horror) mixed with Steampunk, with just a hint of Tokyo modernity and a love for hand-made quirk. In other words, a very suitable ambience for my work.
I’m thrilled to have been invited to join the group exhibition 音色展 [Neiro], which translates as “Tone”. The kanji characters for this word are great; they literally translate as “the color of the sound”, which I might just have to use as a title to a piece of art someday. The exhibition also includes 7 other artists.
Unfortunately, I can’t make the trip to Tokyo this time, but I certainly hope to be able to do so soon. This is just the first of two exhibitions in May/June; I’ll let you know about the other in the days ahead.
In the meantime, please stop by, enjoy the unique gallery and shop, maybe pick up some new artwork, and drop me a line to tell me about your experience.
