Pierre-Yves Caër Gallery - Japanese Platform
Pierre-Yves Caër Gallery, a Parisian gallery dedicated to Japanese contemporary art, will exhibit the works of two Japanese female artists who use unconventional – somewhat mysterious – creative processes. Aya Kawato, a 30-year-old painter currently recognized as one of the most promising contemporary artists on the Japanese art scene, developed her own filter technique to create huge grids of colors reminding us of precious fabrics or of high-tech medical imaging used by neurologists. Makiko Kumano, a photographer, applies the Fresson process using charcoal paper, to develop most of her prints. This gives them a one-of-a-kind texture that emphasizes the mysterious appearance of Makiko’s secret and surreal landscapes. The gallery continues to pursue its goal of showcasing the creativity, elegance and intensity of Japanese contemporary art.
