Upcoming Exhibition 'Animals: An Enduring Tradition'

‘Animals: An Enduring Tradition’

Ukiyo-e and Nihonga

On View: Oct. 10 – Dec. 14, 2019
Location: Sato Sakura Gallery, 501 W 20th St., New York, NY10011
Hours: Tues. – Sat. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Opening Reception: Oct. 17, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Yoichi Nishino. Family in the Forest. 2006. Mineral pigments, nikawa gelatin, Japanese washi paper.

New York, NY - Sato Sakura Gallery and Ronin Gallery will once again transcend medium in their second collaborative exhibition, Animals: An Enduring Tradition. Under the theme doubutsu-ga or “animal pictures,” they will consider the humor, beauty, and mystery of the animal world as represented in 19th and early 20th century woodblock prints and contemporary Nihonga paintings. With each gallery a leader in their respective field, this exhibition provides a rare opportunity to explore these works side-by-side.

Across the centuries, animals have held an important place in Japanese art. Through the lens of Buddhism and Shinto, animals provide a worldly connection to the divine. In secular art, their allegorical resonance spans personal identity to cultural history. From folktales of foxes gathered in firelight in ukiyo-e to monumental elephants in contemporary Nihonga painting, the animal world captures the imagination of artists and audiences alike.

 

Kuniyoshi. Taishun. From the series 24 Paragons of Filial Piety. c.1845. Woodblock print.

During the Edo period (1603-1868), ukiyo-e, or “pictures of the floating world,” captured the vibrant popular culture of Japan’s capital. At the hands of Edo’s artists, animal motifs played diverse roles. They symbolized the changing of seasons, shrouded political critiques, or indulged the viewer in tales of the supernatural. Whether observed or imagined, ukiyo-e artists rendered animals in the spirit of the floating world.

Following the start of the Meiji period (1868-1912) and the establishment of Nihonga–a Japanese painting style using mineral pigments–works portraying animals both familiar and fantastic were formally classified as a unique genre. Just as in bird and flower imagery, Nihonga masters composed the beauty of the animal world with an age-old reverence for nature, all living things, and the fragility of life.

Although separated by centuries and artistic techniques, the ukiyo-e prints and Nihonga paintings shown side by side during this special exhibition are united by a shared fascination. Viewed together, these works present the breathtaking diversity and splendor of the animal in Japanese art.

Location : Sato Sakura Gallery - 501 West 20th Street New York, NY10011
Event date and time : Saturday, July 13th 2:00PM-3:30PM

In conjunction with the Ronin | Globus Artist-in-Residence Program, Sato Sakura Gallery proudly welcomes 2019 program award winner and Japanese Nihonga painter Yoshihito Kawase for a special artist talk event.

In his compositions of flora, fauna, and dramatic landscapes, Kawase masterfully blends both modern and orthodox techniques in his use of Nihonga materials - washi paper, gold leaf, sumi-ink, and natural mineral pigments. While upholding the classical aesthetics of yohaku no bi, or ‘ the beauty of empty space,’ Kawase simultaneously explores new avenues for expression through delicate brushwork, bold composition, and rich colour palette.

During the course of this event, we will speak with Kawase about how Nihonga paintings are made, philosophy, techniques, and his own journey as an artist. In doing so we seek to illuminate both the rare talents of Yoshihito Kawase as a Nihonga painter, and the enchanting beauty of this classical artform.

About the Ronin|Globus Artist in Residence Program 

The annual Ronin|Globus Artist-in-Residence Program seeks to stimulate cross-cultural dialogue through Japan’s vanguard of visual art while providing an opportunity for emerging and mid-career Japanese visual artists to live, work, and exhibit in New York City.

Each year the selected Artist-in-Residence will be the featured artist in Ronin Gallery’s summer exhibition, Contemporary Talents of Japan. In addition, they will receive up to a one month stay at Globus Washitsu in central Manhattan, a $1,000 cash stipend, and a round-trip ticket between Tokyo and NYC. During their time in New York, the Artist-in-Residence will have an en plein air studio in the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden at Brooklyn Botanic Garden. 

Public lectures, demonstrations, and other events will take place at Ronin Gallery, Globus Washitsu, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and other venues during the artist's stay in New York.

'Summer Gems'

ロゴ_コラボ_wilensky_WEB用.jpg

‘Summer Gems’

Masterpiece Nihonga paintings and world-class mineral specimens

On view: July. 11 - September 28, 2019
Location: 501 W. 20th St., New York, NY 10011
Hours: Tues. – Sat. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Opening Reception: Thursday, July. 11 , 5:30pm - 7:30pm

In collaboration with our partners at Wilensky Minerals, Sato Sakura Gallery is proud to present ‘Summer Gems.’ For this curation,we bring together masterpiece Nihonga paintings - a refined artistic tradition from Japan famed for its use of natural mineral pigments - alongside world-class mineral specimens - themselves works of art and the base of the pigments used by Nihonga artists.  In doing so, we seek to explore the relationship of rare gems and the transcendent beauty they lend to Nihonga Japanese paintings.

The practice of painting using colours derived from natural sources began thousands of years ago. Evidence of this still remains at sites like Lascaux and Altamira, where early humans used materials collected from the world around them to paint depictions of animals, people, and life, on the walls of their primitive homes. Although the use natural materials remained the standard for centuries around the world, the availability of oil and acrylic paints has all but eradicated the use of mineral pigments from the artist’s repertoire.

In Japan however, the tradition of using natural mineral sources for pigment has continued uninterrupted for generations. This is in part due to the appreciation by Nihonga artists of the rare beauty that using precious stones can lend their motifs - studies on landscapes, flowering trees, and even figurative works - all evince a lustre, depth of colour, and dimensionality that has permanently cemented Nihonga within the upper echelons of the global artistic canon.

About Wilensky Fine Minerals 
Wilensky Fine Minerals has entered a new chapter with the opening of a gallery in the Chelsea Art District of NYC, presenting fine minerals among the world’s great art galleries, displaying minerals as works of art. The new gallery opens up the amazing world of minerals to everyone. Minerals are displayed alongside neighbors exhibiting Warhol, Basquiat, Pollock and Picasso. Achieving the impact of art through natural mineral specimens is the goal. Not a competition, but a convergence.

‘The Science and Colours of Human Expression’

.

.

・Event date and time: Saturday, June 8th - 2:00PM-4:00PM

・Location:Sato Sakura Gallery - 501 West 20th Street New York, NY10011

Sato Sakura Gallery is very proud to partner with ‘The Making and Knowing Project’ of Columbia University to present a compelling look into the intersection of human expression in art and our understanding of the natural world.

Knowledge of natural materials has been essential to methods of artistic expression since early human history, and it continues to inform artistic practice to this day.

As a gallery specializing in Japanese Nihonga - a painting method largely defined by its use of paint derived from natural minerals - we believe that by deepening our knowledge of the way in which artists both create and use natural materials to craft beautiful works, we can forever transform our appreciation and understanding of art.

Along with presentations by both Sato Sakura and Columbia University, a hands-on demonstration will also provide rich insight into the physical and aesthetic properties of mineral colour pigments.

Following the talk we will be presenting fine Japanese tea and tea treats. This free event is open to the public.

This event is sponsored by Sato Sakura Gallery and was made possible by the generous support of ‘The Making and Knowing Project,’ an initiative within The Center for Science and Society at Columbia University.

A Celebration of Japanese Portraiture and Spring

Hours: Tues. – Sat. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Opening Reception: Thursday, April. 11 , 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Alongside works reveling in the beauty of young blossoms marking the coming of spring, Sato Sakura invites you to experience the breadth of contemporary Japanese Nihonga portraiture.

Japanese Nihonga portrait and figure paintings - specifically those featuring  beautiful women, called ‘Bijin-ga’ -  represent thousands of years of rich artistic tradition. Not limited by the deceptive simplicity of outlines, minimal shading, and a delicate colour palate that are the hallmark of Japanese Nihonga, these paintings are able to transport the viewer to other places and times.

From the enduring practice of crafting scenes that convey the distinguished beauty of Japanese costume and elegant female forms, changing seasons, traditional dance, and even hidden allusions to tales from antiquity, the works on display during this exhibition are superior examples of the capacity for depth and variety of expression in contemporary Nihonga paintings.

Hours: Tues. – Sat. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Opening Reception: Thursday, Jan. 10 , 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Sato Sakura Gallery invites you to celebrate the beauty of distinctive styles and techniques within the contemporary Nihonga canon . The vivid colours and modern design aesthetics of Takashi Nagoya’s paintings are featured alongside the masterful brush work of Mariko Yoshida’s tradition-inspired minimalist floral motifs.

As an art form established during a period of Japanese history when dialogue with the West inspired both evolution and resistance throughout Japanese culture, the paintings featured in this special exhibition exemplify Nihonga’s ability to persevere as a classical art form- constantly reinvented in order to secure its own place within the modern world.

Although classically trained, Takashi Nagoya’s avant garde ’Nihonga Cross Design’ approach to his composition and painting style transcend the historical conventions of the art form to create something entirely unique and distinctly modern. The methodical arrangement of flora and fauna in his works evoke a sense of playful awareness of both the time honoured traditions of Nihonga and the importance of change.

Conversely however, Mariko Yoshida composes her works with strict adherence to orthodox composition and use of mineral pigments and brush techniques. Her keen eye for conveying effortless beauty found in the natural world speak to the classical influence of her journey as an artist of the old capital of Japan - Kyoto.  The philosophy of Yoshida’s reverence for the past is evident within her modern pastoral scenes and injects new life into this artistic tradition.

Sakura: An Enduring Tradition
Ukiyo-e & Nihonga

A Collaborative Exhibition with Ronin Gallery


On view: Nov. 8 - Dec 20, 2018
Location: Sato Sakura Gallery (501 W. 20th St., New York, NY 10011)
Hours: Tues. – Sat. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Opening Reception: Thursday, Nov. 8 , 5:30pm - 7:30pm (at Sato Sakura Gallery)

Ronin Gallery and Sato Sakura Gallery will come together this November to transcend time and medium in the collaborative exhibition Sakura: An Enduring Tradition. Ronin Gallery will present a collection of 18th – 19th century Japanese woodblock prints that depict cherry blossoms, while Sato Sakura will evoke the blooms of our contemporary world through contemporary Nihonga paintings. With each gallery a leader in their respective field, this exhibition provides a rare opportunity to explore such important works side-by-side.

Although rooted within different periods and social classes, both ukiyo-e and Nihonga are distinguished by their lasting impact on the history of Japanese art. Ukiyo-e, or “images of the floating world,” captured the vital, urban culture of Edo that first blossomed in the 17th century. Embraced as the medium of a newly emerged middle class, these woodblock prints embraced the humor, excitement, and beauty of popular culture and everyday life. From Hiroshige’s romance with the Japanese landscape, to Kuniyoshi’s mastery of the fantastic, ukiyo-e artists created a dynamic art form that inspired not only their contemporaries, but also the Impressionists, Post-impressionists, as well as artists today.

As Western-style painting gained popularity in Japan during the Meiji period (1868-1912), Nihonga, or “Japanese-style painting,” fused the familiar materials and traditional techniques of Japan’s revered painting schools with artistic ideas from the West to create a distinctly modern approach to painting. Today, Nihonga artists continue to capture contemporary life in mineral pigments and gold leaf, ever adapting this dynamic medium. Through Sakura: An Enduring Tradition, Sato Sakura Gallery and Ronin Gallery invite you to immerse yourself in this selection of works that celebrate past, present, and continuity through the theme of the cherry blossom.

Artist Talk - Chinami Nakajima

Join us for this exceedingly rare opportunity, an artist talk by one of the most celebrated Nihonga artists in the world, Chinami Nakajima.
 
Chinami Nakajima was born in Obuse in Nagano Prefecture. He is the third son of Kiyoshi Nakajima, who was also a Nihonga painter. During Nakajima's student years, he aimed to create a new style of Nihonga, breaking free from the existing traditional Nihonga style. His doubt and anger about society in post-war Japan later inspired him to create the series, "Portrait". This became his life work. 

His subject matter is vast, however, he is particularly well known for his depictions of blossoming flowers, such as cherry blossoms and peonies in which his motto "more real than real," is evinced in every frame.  


In recent years, he completed curtains installed at the Shin Kabuki-Za Theater with the theme "Spring and Autumn."  He also created paintings on sliding screen doors in the Sakura room at Koyasan Kongōbu-ji. He was a professor at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts for 19 years and is currently a professor emeritus at the university.

Enjoy his unique perspective on the art of Nihonga, and view one of his masterpieces, a four-panel folding screen, titled “Spring Night, a Weeping Cherry Tree in Miharu” exhibited at Sato Sakura Gallery New York. 

Space is limited and RSVP is recommended.

Ryo Date and the Collection of Sato Sakura Museum

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 5, 6-8p.m 

We are pleased to present this exhibition featuring the work of Nihonga artist Ryo Date, renowned for her emotionally moving renderings of the mountains, sea, and countryside of Japan.

Ryo Date was born in 1962 in the Shouzu district of Kagawa prefecture. After completing her graduate studies at Tokyo University of the Arts in 1987, she exhibited her work in numerous solo, group, and competition exhibitions. In 1989, as part of the restoration of Nara prefecture’s Yakushiji temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, she was responsible for reviving the color of two Deva King figures. Her work at the 1993 group exhibition Yuga no Kai was acquired by the Ministry of Justice.

Known for her landscape paintings, Date depicts a range of subjects including her hometown, villages or towns for which she has a close affinity, plants that color the four seasons, animals, and more. Each of her works is rendered with a sense of nostalgia and intimacy, bringing a tranquility to the heart of the viewer. She is especially recognized for her sensibility with water and light.

In recent years, she has broadened her vision beyond Japan, creating landscapes that portray the sakura trees of Washington D.C.

This exhibition includes Ryo Date’s contemporary Nihonga landscape paintings in combination with a selection of works from the permanent collection of Sato Sakura Museum.

Special Exhibition: Imagination

Sato Sakura Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of our newest exhibition, Imagination – Contemporary Nihonga Collection from Sato Sakura Museum. In Japan, the mere mention of flowers brings to mind the sakura (cherry blossom), and the people of Japan harbor a deep a affection for this special blossom. Adored throughout Japanese culture, the sakura has appeared in countless pieces of literature and works of art dating back to ancient times.

The sakura’s beauty lies not only in the splendor of its full bloom, but also in the transience of the blossoms, which, once each year, emerge in splendor only to wilt away in an instant — a beauty which countless artists have used metaphorically to capture the human experience of life and death.

Even today, Nihonga artists enamored with the sakura seek to find new and unique expressions as they create their work, building upon countless artworks portraying the sakura from generations before them.

The works in this exhibit were selected from the Sato Sakura Museum permanent collection, with the central focus being the sakura as depicted in imaginary worlds painted by the artists. In this season where we yearn for the coming of spring, we invite you to experience the colorful world of contemporary Nihonga.
