Nishimura gallery is pleased to present SOYA Asae's solo exhibition "Float" from Tuesday March 29 to Saturday April 30, 2011.
SOYA Asae was born 1974 in Kanagawa prefecture, conferred a doctorate for painting major of Tokyo University of Fine Arts and Music in 2006. As it is seen in the VOCA winning piece, bathtubs have been one of her major subject until now. Her first solo exhibition "Prism" was held at Nishimura gallery in 2007. Solo exhibition "Ringing" was held in the SHISEIDO GALLERY, Tokyo last year. This exhibition showed large installation that was constructed by colored cutting sheet.
Her solo exhibition will be held at The Obuse Museum・ The Nakajima Chinami Gallery in Nagano from July 30 to September 20 this year. She will participate in group exhibition "ART FAIR TOKYO 2011" at Tokyo International Forum from July 29 to 31 and "New Art Exhibition NEXT vol.1 Sparkling Days" at Yokohama Civic Art Gallery from September 30 to October 19 this year.
The remarkable points of her works are that the scene she saw through her sense of touch and smell is recreated. The space of light she draws with complex gradation of colors by layering thin paintings feel us "comfortable room" .
Her works remind us of comfort that everyone experience in daily life and blows new breath into our inert life.
This exhibition "Float" includes 11 oil paintings and 10 pastel drawings. We hope you to enjoy space of light and water she draws.
