Asae Soya Exhibition "tokotoko fuwari"

2022.03.24 - 04.04
fuwari (2022)

This Spring, the world full of colors and light of Asae Soya, will bring a unique sense of color to Spiral!

Asae Soya is a contemporary artist who creates works full of colors and light that gently envelop the viewers. Her activities cover a wide range of genres, including not only paintings but also installations and public art in which color and space resonate with each other.
This time, newly produced works such as works inspired by weeds that have grown in the vacant city spaces due to the corona virus pandemic, as well as works from watercolors and pastels, to oil paintings and a new installation work that make use of Spiral’s light-filled glass surfaces, will be introduced as a journey into the various activities of Asae Soya.
In addition, this exhibition will showcase, for the first time, some drawings at the source of Soya's creative ideas.
Enjoy a world of light and colors and the casual sceneries of everyday life, from weeds and a washbasin filled with water to the effects of natural light into a room, interpreted by the hands of Asae Soya.
