We are pleased to have Yui Furuyama and Ai Yoshida Joint Exhibition Gather and Draw from Saturday, 16th September through Friday, 6th October.


The theme of the gallery’s 2023 program, “play,” refers to “a slow oscillating movement, a to-and-fro movement within itself.” Also, <汓> and <斿>, the older Chinese characters for <遊> (means ‘play’) refer to “the rippling of the water surface caused by the wind” and “the way a flag or streamer flaps in the wind. 


Furuyama describes ‘playing’ for her as a state that is created in the gaps between movement. When she follows something that is moving or changing, she is caught up in the movement.

Yoshida says that the energy of the wind and light she feels when she is in nature often motivates her to create works. In addition to her ongoing work with Japanese paper and foil, she began making kites, or works that fly in the wind.


In this joint exhibition, two artists will connect through their play with the wind, create a field that draws us in and engage us in a swaying movement.

We hope you will enjoy the ‘back and forth’ movement of these two artists, who both pioneer free expression based on Japanese-style painting.


Artists Statement

Invited to playing and the wind, a field where people gather is being created. We draw the line for our works, and draw the line of kite string in the sky. Therefore the phrase ‘Gather and Draw’ came to our mind.

Our ‘back and forth’ movement or its trace will be enchased in the exhibition room. And a poet Naha Kanie will draw the words from there.  We’re excited about all the fun things that are sure to happen.
