About Kunihiko NOHARA

In his works, the figures and animals wear their own space, scent, atmosphere, sensation, and time as a mass, and they are lovely and unique, but at the same time, they go back and forth between strangeness and mismatch as an extended body. Her figurative motifs are vividly painted to evoke abstract images. In recent years, he has been actively creating collaborative works between traditional crafts and contemporary art. In recent years, he has been actively creating works in collaboration with traditional crafts and contemporary art, and has been actively participating in solo exhibitions, art fairs, and special exhibitions overseas since 2010.

Precious Time

Park Hotel Tokyo

gallery UG is pleased to announce the group exhibition "Precious Time" at the Park Hotel Tokyo from June 7 (Mon) to November 14 (Sun), 2021.

In these days of the Corona disaster, the environment is changing in a hurry and the days are flowing so fast that it is becoming difficult to spend time looking at the sky with a relaxed mind.
Nevertheless, the sky remains the same, dazzling and intense with the sun's rays in summer, and pleasantly high and clear in autumn.
In this exhibition, as you gaze at the vast and endless blue sky, you will see works born from pure impulses, thoughts that well up from within, and works with a sense of humor. You may come across works that remind you of a clear sky without a speck of cloudiness, like the clear skies of Japan, and make you feel refreshed and free of worries. Please enjoy the "Precious Time" that can only be found here and now.
