Tanabe Chikuunsai IV
Jul 26 - Aug 24 2019 - 4 days left
Tanabe Chikuunsai IV will create a site-specific installation within the gallery’s walls. Tanabe’s enormous, sinuous structures woven on-site from tiger bamboo seem to emerge from and meld into floors, ceilings, and walls; while the organic forms of his free-standing sculptures, made from tiger bamboo and incorporating bamboo roots, share a fluidity and living energy. Artist Reception: Fri, Jul 26, 5-7pm. Artist Demonstration: Sat, Jul 27, 3-4pm.
Monden Yuichi
Aug 30 - Sep 14 2019
While retaining a ‘family resemblance’ and making good use the lineage’s signature fallen-pine-needle plaiting style, Monden Yuichi has elaborated upon the established aesthetics of his father’s pioneering bamboo sculptures with an energetic flourish. Hundreds of strips of carefully split bamboo are gathered together and wrested into flowing compositions. Artist Reception: Fri, Aug 30, 5-7pm. Artist Demonstration: Sat, Aug 31, 3-4pm.
