GALLERY NAOではアメリカを拠点に活躍する平出俊と丸山恭世の二人展を開催致します。

Midwestern State Universityで教鞭をとる立体作家の平出俊は23歳で渡米、ウェストバージニア大学とカリフォルニア州立大学で立体造形とグラフィックを学ぶ。





GALLERY NAO has scheduled to present a two-person exhibition by Suguru Hiraide and Yasuyo Maruyama, who live and create their work in the United States.

Suguru Hirade, a sculptor who teaches at Midwestern State University, moved to the United States at the age of 23. He received a BFA in sculpture and graphic design from West Virginia University and an MFA in sculpture from California State University. His experience in the U.S and Japan are important factors for his work. Inspired by cross-cultural, social, and personal identity matters, his works express fusion of diversity. His recent works are made of fabricated and/or cast metals, often with kinetic devices and spice of humor.

Yasuyo Maruyama, a painter, moved to the United States as a resident artist after graduating from the Graduate School of Tokyo Zokei University. Her work is inspired by memory, atmosphere, color, specific moments and scenes found through interaction with others in the artist’s daily life. Her paintings, involving the theme of “face”, depict others in an ideal manner based on obtained information from communication with the models as well as the artist's own experiences.

What kind of "Metamorphoses" can be achieved by the both viewers and the artists who create their works with consciousness of cultural, social, gender and racial diversity? The combined works of these artists provides us with an opportunity to consider these factors and reflect upon their impact on our lives.
