Gallery UG

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Gekko Nu­mata

Promis­ing artists keep emerg­ing to bring their own unique voice that res­onates not only lo­cally but also glob­ally. One such gallery that sup­ports and nur­tures these young tal­ents is Gallery UG, founded in 2001 in Ginza, Tokyo (but since 2011 had move to the more art gallery-friendly Ni­hom­bashi Bakuro­cho area). For Bazaar Art Jakarta 2016, they will fly in four young tal­ents known for their affin­ity to the lim­it­less char­ac­ter­is­tics of na­ture and lov­ing fa­mil­iar­ity with the exquisite­ness of Ja­panese art. Ku­ni­hiko No­horo will bring his whim­si­cal life­like sculp­tures that in­tend to cap­ture the ever-chang­ing shape of time and space. Mean­while Misako Mae­gaki, with her Nekodomo sculp­ture se­ries, yearns to dis­solve the lines be­tween hu­man and the nat­u­ral sur­round­ings in which he/she lives in. The art of paint­ing is rep­re­sented by two pain­ters who are in tune with their rich her­itage, namely Takashi Onishi, who uti­lizes ma­te­ri­als nor­mally used for tra­di­tional paint­ings (min­eral pig­ments, gold and sil­ver foils); and Gekko Nu­mata, who is par­tic­u­larly in­spired by the ni­hon-ga style of Ja­panese paint­ings as he brushed his fa­vorite ob­jects.
