Hiroko Uehara solo exhibition 'Heartbeat'
23 November - 22 December, 2012
TEZUKAYAMA GALLERY is pleased to announce 'Heartbeat' by Hiroko Uehara, the last solo exhibition this year, also part of the Osaka Art Complex vol.5.
Uehara was born in 1985 and completed a master course at the Kyoto City University of Arts this year.
At university she mainly created paintings but recently she has been focusing more on sculptures in order to find more possibilities on how to express herself.
Her sculptures take advantage of the careful observant and descriptive power used on her painting.
For example, she expresses very well her creatures' realistic soft skin on which one can almost see their blood vessels, this gentle facial expression became representative of Uehara's style. Her works have been introduced all over the world and are highly reputed.
Most of her works combine plants and humans, making us imagine various scenes. Some might imagine the image of a plant's proliferation eroding and eradicating humans. Or some might imagine the happiness of the birth of a new organism and their coexistence. This confliction of images in her art work depends on the viewers, it might, perhaps be a reflection of ourselves.
In this exhibition, we would like to exhibit her works entirely at the gallery space so that it can express her concept and sense of Uehara's creations.
We hope you will absorb the atmosphere and enjoy the exhibition.
