Natsunosuke Mise Sole Exhibition
by Kido Press
Location: Kido Press
Artist(s): Natsunosuke MISE
Date: 9 Oct - 15 Nov 2015

The exhibit is composed mainly of Mise's latest copperplate prints, drawings, and other small-sized works "like little gems that would fit in the palm of the hand." Also on display are pieces from the "rust works" series. These feature brilliant coloring by hand through application of verdigris, Paris white, and other materials on prints. Please come and see this exhibit of new works by Mise, who continues to explore new materials and methodologies of presentation while remaining in touch with the world of traditional Japanese-style painting.

< Comment by the artist > There is a deep relationship between my own corporeality and the size of my works. When I want to produce a picture with a size far exceeding my body, it reflects my sensation that the world is too wide to see and highly complex. Conversely, when I make a work that can be held in both hands, it reflects my impulse to tenderly embrace the world and lovingly gaze at it. I titled this exhibit "Rekiho" as an indication of my desire to scatter pebbles ("reki") like little gems ("ho") that would fit in the palm of the hand.
