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.
