Kashima Arts will participate in Art Central Hong Kong!

We are happy to announce our participation in Art Central Hong Kong for the second time.
This year, we will introduce works by two artists, Sugimata Tadashi and Hamada Kiyoshi, who were close with Saito Yoshishige, a key figure in post-war Japanese art history. Mono-ha is the most well-known stream of group associated with Yoshishige Saito, but in this exhibition, we will focus on different streams of art history, as it is titled "Tokyo 80's Another Story."

We will introduce Sugimata's works from 50's to 80's to show his path on creativity.
Hamada will showcase Drawing series from 80's to the new works, that shows his consistent approach to art and the evolving method of expression.

Come and check out our booth if you are visiting Hong Kong during the art fest!

A Work of the Month

Ogata Kenzan
Cherry blossoms

Ink and color on fan-shaped paper, illustrated in the exhibition catalogue "Art of Rinpa" at Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Art

Kenzan is famous for his ceramics, but he was also a talented painter. Following his older brother's footsteps, Kenzan started to show his gift as a painter in later years. This is a very gentle piece illustrating cherry blossoms with gradations of ink and pale pink. Unlike his brother, Korin, Kenzan found his style in the simplicity.
