Sansiao Gallery is delighted to present Pop…in art, an exhibition of prints by a variety of artists who were at one point or another associated with the 20th century pop art movement, including works by the movementʼs pioneer ‒ Andy Warhol (1928-1987). This exhibition is themed around Warhol and his pop conceptualism.
We are pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Kana Minami titled “Works On Paper” at Bernarducci Meisel Gallery in NYC.

I thought what I would draw for this solo exhibition last winter.
Just then, I found a dead pigeon I was walking on the road.
I wanted to bury the headless body but couldn’t because I was in a hurry.
Being anxious about that I passed a day.
The corpse disappeared on the way back.
I still think about that from time to time, “who buried the pigeon?”, “why did he die?”, “how did he live?” etc.
Lately I often think of happiness.
Talking with people I love.
Being embraced by them.
My motifs are always living things.
Only I can give “happiness” them.
By being loved, I can be kind to others.
People who love me are precious, and I want to be like that for them in my drawings.
I drew thinking of “trace of happiness” which is changing everyday.
Hina Maekawa is going to show her works at RISE GALLERY.

“WHERE DOES SHE COME FROM?”
This simple sentence also means “Where do their ideas come from?” “Where were they (characters in paintings) born?” “Who is the artist I’ve never seen?” etc.
I am so glad if you would enjoy the show while thinking about it.
Kana Uwatoko has just been active as an artist, but she has talents for paint and composition, and ghosts in her painting are attractive.
Kanae Shimada often paints “a certain girl” in her works. Landscapes and her are well-balanced.
Haruka Kawabata usually uses the same motifs, but she has challenged something new in this exhibition.
Saki Fujikawa is a gimper. Always creates new things, and that is beyond our expectation.
I’m sure you will enjoy their characteristic motifs and techniques!

Using symbolized female images of all ages and mythological motifs, Hina Maekawa pursues allegorically picturesque world painted with oil and resin.
Keiko Miyagawa makes mythical creatures using stuffed animals, fur and polymer clay, as she considers contradictions relating to the workings of “life” “holy” and “sex”.
We look forward to your coming and enjoying beautiful works as an expression of their vivid feeling.
