Writers QuintetIV of quintet IV- five star: Five-Star Artists

There are the continuous work announcement results, and series exhibition "quintet" by five promising mid-sized writers (quintet) is held in the future.


By book exhibition, Emiko Aoki, Miyuki Takenaka, Tanaka migiwa, Misa Funai, recent work, new item approximately 80 points of Kumiko Muroi are displayed as the series plan fourth.


As for the first, the second, as for the third, "nature" was theme "scenery", but this theme is "concreteness and interval of abstraction". Paul Gauguin declared, "art is one abstraction", and thought adopted philosophical factor in picture. Five writers follow innovativeness of Gauguin unconsciously and put intellectual line and sensible color together and produce in the amplitude to express thing and self to copy the world into.

Technique and environment produced with us at the same period are nothing but that it is present at "Zeitgeist" to see five different works. It is today's writers that continue wandering for light in concreteness and deep darkness of interval of abstraction and is ourselves. Quintet that is played by our heart by standing still before picture will be to stay as the refreshing "reverberation" for a while.
