A group of Japanese artists are adding a new look to Chelsea with skill, craftsmanship, and a well-studied language in traditional and contemporary Japanese art
At the Dillon Gallery at 555 West 25th, five contemporary Japanese artists are brought together to create a wonderful and somewhat baffling look at the magic of light, beauty, and a simply disturbing look at innocence.
There are few works in this show, but they are all powerful enough to satisfy the viewer with enough information that more is not necessary.
The show is open until October 4th with artists receptions every Thursday of the month.
The title of the show is “Sensai” with means “delicate” in Japanese
The artist are:
Keizaburo Okamura http://www.dillongallery.com/artists/Keizaburo-Okamura/#0
Kimi Sakaki http://www4.ocn.ne.jp/~sakaki00/
Kumi Yamashita http://kumiyamashita.com/
Asami Yoshiga http://www.otter-fe.com/ami/
Yoshiga's piece entitled "The Color of Tokyo" was originally planned and designed to be shown at the Itabashi Museum in Tokyo. Due to the earthquake the show was cancelled soon after the opening. Yoshiga san is happy that the Dillon Gallery has helped her by showing this piece.
