Shizuka Mitsui Solo Exhibition – Part 1- Women Waiting for the Time

September 17th to October 30th

Shizuka Mitsui Solo Exhibition Part II "The Tiger's Spell' will open on February 15th, 2019.

Where am I? Walking out to the corridor, I see evenly spaced doors lined up on the wall.

Wherever I look, the scenery is indistinguishable – I decide to walk on aimlessly.

The carpet lies as if to absorb my very existence,

Surrounded by an echoing sound larger than life, I tiptoe my way trying to kill the noise.

Then, a girl of unknown origin and time appears out of nowhere.

She smiles gently as she sits back on a chair.

Before I notice, the music playing in the background was changed from a waltz to jazz.

In front of my eyes, things I thought only existed in a remote land are imperceptibly lined up.

And now appears a world totally created out of oil paint.

 

I titled the first part of the exhibition ‘Women Waiting for the Time’ referring to my mother’s favorite phrase – To everything there is a season. There must be a world besides what we can actually see; there must be a definite ‘time’ everywhere. Fuzzy shapes that wiggle on the canvas, colors that change in an instance, and magnificent sparkles of intersecting oil paints! I paint boldly, delicately, and fiercely fast as if to capture the moment.

The first part of the exhibition ‘Women Waiting for the Time’ (9/19/18~10/30/18) will be consisted mainly of my work from the past. I will be introducing my new body of work in the second part of the exhibition ‘The Tiger’s Spell’ (2/15/19~3/31/19).

 

I hope you enjoy the world filled with both nostalgia and present!

 

Shizuka Mitsui
