Ueno no Mori Museum Collection Works Exhibition Holding

Under the theme of "everyday, everyday life", I would like to see it at this time of the year.
A work that touches the heart is picked up from the works of the Ueno Mori Art Museum! ]

Our consciousness and society are fundamentally changing due to the infection problem of the new coronavirus, which started in earnest in Japan this February. Under the subsequent declaration of emergency, we had previously unthinkable behavioral restrictions: staying away from people as much as possible, not meeting, not gathering, not going out or going out, and spending a lot of time at home. Now, we have to reconsider the everyday life that everyone used to take for granted.

The Ueno no Mori Art Museum holds a number of winning works from the Ueno no Mori Art Museum Grand Prize Exhibition, which has been held 38 times since 1983.
This time, from this, I would like to see the theme of "everyday, everyday life"
I chose about 80 works I thought.

We make up a group of things that make us feel bright and happy, calm everyday scenes, towns and nature that are always there, and unique imaginations and thoughts from familiar people and landscapes. ..

At the venue, about 40 items from the <diary> series in which print artist Tetsuya Noda recorded family and everyday fragments from the same collection, and works created with Sayaka Akiyama as the subject of Ueno Park will be displayed at the venue. ..
In the simple and straightforward gaze for the everyday life that artists are familiar with, I suppose we can find something important that touches our hearts today.

Main exhibits
・Approximately 80 points from works (oil paintings, Japanese paintings, etc.) winning the Ueno Royal Museum Grand Prize Exhibition
・Approximately 40 works by Tetsuya Noda (prints).
・Sayaka Akiyama “Walk my basic form Ueno Park” 25th December 2008, 3rd April 7, 7th, 14th, 12th May, 16th May”

Kaho Kasuga "It's miserable and delicious."

Oil F100 2020

The feeling of guilt and disgust for greed, as well as the exhilarating refreshing feeling that exists at the same time, have an impact with a photographically extreme three-point perspective. A scene that makes you feel lonely, a bold cut that makes you grasp it and a cool depiction give a strong impression.

Sanae Fujiwara "Picnic"

Japanese painting F100 2020

It depicts a fun time out with the family.
It seems that the busy time is still continuing, with the dented feeling that people who have been there up to now standing up.
Bright colors with a sense of rhythm excite me.

Mika Chiba "Mysterious"

Oil F100 2017

It successfully captures the effect created by the irregular reflection of the light entering the water surface.
Most of the woman's body is in clear water, and the delicate light expresses the feeling of coolness and floating.

Akihiro Togashi "FORM, Little Bird"

Acrylic, water-based paint, etc. S100 2000

A large tree-like object is drawn in the center, and animals and birds are drawn around it. There are a variety of materials and techniques, and I use a free technique to sew cloth on the screen, use buttons and paint, and create a flexible screen.

[Special Exhibition] Tetsuya Noda Prints <diary> series

There is a display change.
First semester: July 23 (Thurs./holiday) to August 10 (Mon./holiday)
Second semester: Wednesday, August 12-Sunday, August 30

Under the theme of "everyday, everyday life", this exhibition features Tetsuya Noda, one of Japan's leading printmakers,'diary' series.

The <Diary> series, which deals with the scenery around us and our family, is Noda's life work that has continued from 1968 to the present. In this exhibition, about 40 points are divided into the first and second halves from the works from the 1970s to the 1980s. Will be on display.

Based on photographs taken by himself, woodcuts, silk screens, and other works that create images of families, vegetables and fruits, shopping bags, sofas, views from the car window, and other things that make you imagine your daily life and events. It is spelled out plainly.

While sticking to the very personal subject of the author's own daily life, they may have the universality that anyone can share only in the "nothing, everywhere" scene.
