Nanako Kawaguchi "The seven dwarfs haven't come, yet"
2009.8.29 Sat. - 10.3 Sat.

Yuka Sasahara Galleryでは8月29日から10月3日まで川口奈々子の個展「7人の小人はまだ来ない」を開催いたします。


Yuka Sasahara Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of 'The seven dwarfs haven't come, yet', a solo exhibition by Nanako Kawaguchi from August 29th to October 3rd.

Since completing the MFA course at Kyoto University of Arts, Kawaguchi (1978-) has been based in Osaka continuing her work on paintings. She is now considered to be one of the most promising painters, being selected for 'VOCA 2008'.

Kawaguchi's creations begin with layering and placing various motifs on tracing papers. She characteristically explores and seeks the particular elements that cross over with her intuition. By perceiving all motifs as phenomenon - within two dimensions - she controls color and shapes more accurately, with each motif blending into each other. It becomes the wellspring of new lines of her emotion, on canvas.

The girls who play important roles within the colorful, melting and overlapping world of Kawaguchi's paintings sometimes contain ribbons and woods within their faces and wander around the world of Kawaguchi. The title of this exhibition, 'The seven dwarfs haven't come, yet' is an expectation that the story will begin soon. The un-began story is like a dream without an end but perhaps a certain reality is portrayed at the front of it.

We see the girls sidestepping to avoid giving the audience ideas of where they are heading to, convinced of where their destination will be.

We hope you enjoy Kawaguchi's solo exhibition, the first in the past two years.
