Shiori Tono, 'Hide and Seek', 2019, oil on canvas, 130.3x162.0cm

MASAHIRO MAKI GALLERY is pleased to present concurrent solo exhibitions by two artists on our second and third floor gallery spaces, respectively. On the third floor, we will be holding the first solo exhibition by Shiori Tono.

Shiori Tono creates works on canvas using motifs from her own childhood photographs taken by her parents, and photographs she herself has taken and stored, depicting on canvas the disintegration and distortion of ‘memory’.

Our memory is vague and unreliable. At times, memories are rewritten or fabricated by our own assumptions. Tono creates a grid of small squares on the original photograph using masking tape and transfers the image square by square onto the canvas. Each square is transferred at a different point in time from its adjoining squares, thus creating an unevenness in coloring and shape. This is also reminiscent of the pixelation effect that can be seen in the deterioration of digital images.

For Tono, who incorporates the characteristics of memory in her method of production and transforms them into finished works, memory is not merely a means of losing oneself in nostalgia. She captures the instability and uncertainty of 'memory’ objectively, regarding its loss and discontinuity calmly, reflecting it in her work. We hope you will visit us to view the artist’s first solo exhibition.

Anne Kagioka Rigoulet, 'Element b-1', 2019, acrylic on canvas, 194.0x130.3cm

MASAHIRO MAKI GALLERY is pleased to present concurrent solo exhibitions by two artists on our second and third floor gallery spaces, respectively. On the second floor, we will be showing new works created by Anne Kagioka Rigoulet during her artist residency in Luxembourg.

Beginning in July 2019, Anne Kagioka Rigoulet participated in an artist residency program at Bourglinster Castle. The three-month residency is part of an exchange program with Youkobo Art Space, organized by the Ministry of Culture of Luxembourg. During a fulfilling three-month stay, Kagioka was involved in research, experimentation, exchange and artistic production. She was inspired in many ways by the ‘rock` that she encountered there, in which she felt a strong connected to the theme of her artistic output up to that point – ‘the fundamental energy of nature’. Having thus found a new motif, she presented a solo exhibition at Bourglinster Castle just before the end of her stay, from Sep. 19 (Thu.) to 22 (Sun.). There, she presented her new series, 'Element'. Our upcoming exhibition marks the first time the series will be shown in Japan. We invite you to view Kagioka’s latest works, which represent a new stage in her artistic practice.
