Maki Fine Arts
Maki Fine Arts was founded in 2010 and has been located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, since 2015. The gallery represents artists at various stages of their careers, including veteran artists who hold a prominent position in Japan’s contemporary art history, such as Yoshio Shirakawa; mid-career artists who have received solid recognition, such as Yasuko Toyoshima and Fuminao Suenaga; and representatives of the new generation of artists. Maki Fine Arts has also proactively introduced international artists to its Japanese audience. In 2019, the gallery presented American artist Alex Dodge’s first solo show in Asia.

Works showcased at Maki Fine Arts often demonstrate an artist’s distinguished approach and unique take on issues involving the medium and veneer that are presented through paintings, photography, and three-dimensional artworks. Many creations by the gallery’s artists have been shown in Japanese museums.

Maki Fine Arts is pleased to present “LAUNDRY DAY: IT ALL COMES OUT IN THE WASH,” a solo show by American artist Alex Dodge. Dodge is currently based between Brooklyn and Tokyo, and his works have been added to collections at the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), the Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC), and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Dodge has been creating works that blend progressive digital tools with classical techniques. Making full use of digital 3D modeling, Dodge begins his process by generating three-dimensional images to use as the foundation of his works. He then utilizes technique such as laser-cut stenciling and wood-block printing to create richly textured surfaces produced with thick layers of paint.
