Dec 12-Jan 31
Metallic Sparks Exhibition Dates: December 12, 2017 January 31, 2018 Opening Reception: Thursday, December 14, 2017, 6-8pm Location: Onishi Gallery, 521 W. 26th Street, New York City Gallery Hours: Tuesday Saturday, 11am 6pm Onishi Gallery is proud to present Metallic Sparks, a special group show featuring metalwork, paintings, sculpture, and fine art jewelry, all uniquely enhanced with precious metals in their concept and design. This sparkling winter show highlights the work of Onishi Gallerys represented artists, Japanese talents across art media and time periods. Among the exhibiting artists are Shun Sudo, Yusuke Ochiai, Nagai Megumi, and NAOYA, each of whom incorporates metallic sparks into the concept as well as into the material of their pieces. Shun Sudo creates gold butterfly paintings using gold ink, a color that he associates with energy, and his many gold butterflies, in turn, create a kaleidoscope of positive energy. Yusuke Ochiai paints images of a fantastical figure name POI who spreads sparks of love throughout the world. Nagai Megumi masters the art of makie, a traditional Japanese lacquer painting technique that requires the sprinkling of gold and silver powder to decorate wood. And NAOYA sculpts small figurines who live in POLYKANTEN, an imaginary universe, blanketed by shining stars. In addition to these innovative artists, the exhibition showcases the metalwork art of Osumi Yukie, currently the only female Japanese Living National Treasure, among other groundbreaking metal artists working in silver, gold, and more. Further, on display will be cutting-edge examples of jewelry artwork, a creative genre of wearable metalwork. Japanese ceramic artist Tomoko Konno and French artist Tzuri Gueta collaborate to create a silicon necklace chain with a colored porcelain pendant that resembles an exotic plant or sea creature. Iconic silversmith Michael Izrael Galmer designs a silver purse that pushes the boundaries of form and function. Whether crafted for profound, playful, or practical purposes, the artworks in this exhibition sparkle with creativity. Each piece illustrates how strong yet elusive fine metals can be, enduring and beautiful, special and rare.

Winter Group Show II with Onishi Project
Jan 18-Jan 31
WINTER GROUP SHOW II Date: January 18 January 31, 2018 Opening: Thursday, January 18, 6-8pm Location: Onishi Gallery, 521 W 26th Street, New York, NY 10001 Gallery Hours: TuesdaySaturday, 11am-6pm The second show, Group II, will be hosted from January 18th 31st, 2018. This group features: Adama Coulibaly, Chris Namaizawa, Barbie Stattman, Hiroshi Aoki, James Watts, Silke Natschke and Hisato Fukumoto. Hiroshi Aoki born in 1976, grew up in Tottori, Japan. In 2002, he started as a freelance photographer. Aoki captures elements of human despair, dignity, suffering, hope, as well as subjects defining human rights and conflicts of recent history. He believes it is a necessity to tell the stories of those who think they are powerless and cannot. He believes that his work can change the world. His photos have been exhibited in various venues including museums, galleries and photo festivals. He continues to capture the stories that touch him. Chris Namaizawa lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. He graduated from Chuo University and earned his BA in Business Administration in 2006. He then launched his apparel brand Theater8 in the same year. He went on to exhibit Theater8 in Paris Collection in France in 2008 and started his career as an artist in 2012. Hisato Fukumoto was born in 1962 in Osaka, Japan. Hisato is an MFA graduate from Osaka University of Arts in 1985. Much of my inspiration for this expressive body of work comes from the beauty of nature. I continue to create abstract expressions based on my memories of impressive colors found in our living world. The pictures display geometric composition, and the presence of colors is emphasized more than that of shapes. The technique used to create these pictures involves drawing with Japanese ink and pastels on an acrylic undercoating. This method generates a sense of placing colors rather than merely painting them on. Adama Coulibaly born in 1995 in Katiola city, Cote DIvoire, now lives and works in New York City. The path out of darkness is light, and mine is lit with color. I find comfort in vibrancy, and I crave the control found in geometric order. The contrast within my art is representative of a split in my life difficult childhood years are the base layer of support for my more recent, positive experiences. The positive experiences only manifested after I found an outlet through creativity. My art is an autobiography. I hope it tells my story, but more importantly, that it brings a sense of calm to the viewer, like the process of creating it does for me. Barbie Stattman is an illustrator based in Seattle, Washington. Considerably inspired by animation, Stattman uses her line work and color to suggest movement in still images. She expresses her love of visual storytelling by marrying her fascination of folklore and surrealism into organic, decorative compositions. James Watts is a San Francisco-based sculptor, painter and photographer. Inspired by the mysteries of the internal and external landscapes within and around us. His award-winning work has been shown in over fifty solo and group shows nationally and abroad. Silke Natschke was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1971. She graduated from Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University in Frankfurt with a master in American Literature and Culture, Philosophy and Political Science. That still provides the inexhaustible source of her inspiration as an artist. Philosophical and literary themes are constantly to be found in her work and feed her curiosity needed to venture into experimenting with different materials.
