Masaaki Miyasako, Firework ‘Aqua’ (Shimane Prefecture), four-panel byoubu screen, 2023
Masaaki Miyasako: Living Dreams
October 26 – November 22, 2023
Opening Reception with the Artist on October 26, 2023, 5-8pm, RSVP required
Ippodo Gallery is honored to present Masaaki Miyasako: Living Dreams, the legendary painter’s premier solo exhibition in the United States. He returns to his signature Nihonga painting medium after leading Tokyo University’s special projects division for a half-decade. Miyasako's unique approach to line—almost verging on pointillism—draws on traditional Japanese techniques of portraying shadows and space to a profound effect. His pictures represent romantic visions of life, nature, and the change of seasons in East and Southeast Asia.
This exhibition features eight large paintings, one four-panel folding screen, and ten calligraphy and sculptures, all displaying Miyasako’s transcendent sense of the invisible and unspoken dimension, inviting viewers to enter the sublime and ephemeral world of tender imagination.
