The artist often portrays dancers as well. There is a purity and clarity to his paintings that are usually painted in black, red, brown and blue with acrylic paint and charcoal on canvas. He has exhibited throughout Indonesia, and in Singapore, Netherlands, Ireland, Hong Kong and Japan.

MORE THAN 20 PORTRAITS AND THE UNVEILING OF THIS NEW PRINT FROM ZHU WEI

Faces of friendship, precision, caution, suavity, ideality;
The spiritual, prescient face--the always welcome, common, benevolent face,
The pure, extravagant, yearning,
questioning artist's face; The ugly face of some beautiful Soul, the handsome detested or despised face;

The face of an amour, the face of veneration;
The face as of a dream, the face of an immobile rock;
The face withdrawn of its good and bad,
a castrated face;

Sauntering the pavement, thus, or crossing the ceaseless ferry,
faces, and faces, and faces:

I see them, and complain not, and am content with all.

Walt Whitman

Featured Artists : Kit Pancoast Nagamura, Joji Shimamoto

Please join in the excitement at Tobin Ohashi Gallery for Tokyo Stories which brings together the photography of Kit Nagamura and Joji Shimamoto.

The photographs in this exhibition, Tokyo Stories, take us to to places that may know but have never seen in this way before. Kit and Joji also take us to places we have never been or seen before. Their works invite us to come closer and recall our own Tokyo stories. Their stories are ones that have a universal appeal and stimulate our own imagination and creativity.

We will show Kit's color works together with Joji's black and white works. All works are limited edition, signed and numbered.

You will marvel at the stories their works tell and how they find beauty in places we may have previously ignored.


Oct 9, 2011 - Nov 2, 2011

Featuring 3 Vietnamese artists Giang Nguyen, Nguyen Thanh Truc and Tran Trong Vu .

Vietnam Voices brings together three Vietnamese artists with three very different styles from three different locations. Giang Nguyen is now based in America. Her powerful and striking abstract works actually have a very relaxing and meditative effect on the viewer. Giang will be resident in Japan for one month in 2012 as part of a one month fellowship sponsored by the Japanese government.

Thanh Nguyen Truc based in Vietnam creates intricate collages which blend Asian and western cultures in an orderly composition. His works are in the collection of the Singapoe Art Museum Tran Trong Vu, who has been based in France for the past fifteen years has prepared more than 12 paintings for this show which provide a critical and somewhat humorous view of Vietnam. Vu was recently awarded the Jackson Pollock-Lee Krasner Fellowship for 2011.These artists go beyond stereotypes to engage visitors in a dialogue about a more diverse Vietnamese art scene than what is typically presented.

Opening Reception of MASAKO KAMIYA SOLO SHOW "DIALOGUE"



Jul 23, 2011 - Aug 28, 2011

Featured Artist : Masako Kamiya

Our first solo show with Boston-based Japanese artist Masako Kamiya. Masako engages in a dialogue with paint. She works intimately on the surface, and moves away from the surface in order to see how the layers reveal a new form. This process is an interchange with the painting activity.

Masako builds up dots of color into half-inch, stalactite-like columns with rich variations in color layers. From a distance the painting is a series of dots, which create larger patterns toward a uniformed center. When observed more closely the third dimension is revealed, a forest of multicolored columns. The surface is dense. Colors on the flat surface of the panel or the paper react with the colors on the surface of each stalk when perceived closely.

Masako challenges the way a painting is conventionally perceived.
