Mu­rata’s paint­ings fea­ture dis­tinc­tive mo­tifs of an­i­mals and land­scapes. On dis­play will be her re­cent paint­ings of birds, leaf­less trees, squir­rels and other meek and mild crea­tures, who rule over the de­cep­tive pow­ers of in­no­cence. Urabe’s ex­hi­bi­tion APas­sage of An­cient Red Rice sug­gests a his­tor­i­cal jour­ney. Us­ing found or dis­carded ma­te­ri­als, Urabe con­structs small boats out of bits of driftwood and cre­ates map-like mixed me­dia works on pa­per of imag­i­nary is­lands drawn with min­eral pig­ments. Fea­tured in this ex­hi­bi­tion will be two of Urabe’s small-scale dio­ra­mas of shanties ac­com­pa­nied by minia­ture ce­ramic pots.
