INSIDE: kae higuchi
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 7/14/2007

SAL: My sister-in-law Nobu put me on to the work of Kae Higuchi. A recent exhibition of her paintings was held at the Nishimura Gallery in Tokyo, Tokyo Art Beat described her work as striving “to convey moments in time when one recalls certain memories and their ephemerality.” I enjoy Yoshitomo Nara, and Higuchi has a similar feel, although not as intense as Nara, as Nobu says - the expression on the children in these paintings is quite blank and somewhat spookier as a result. I’m not sure if Higuchi is exhibiting in the US, but I look forward to when she does. Related note - Unica Home has a whole host of Nara-ware through a company called Cereal Art. Cereal Arts mission is to bring art to the masses through three-dimensional limited edition designs. Worth checking out.
