Ota Fine Arts opened a new space in Singapore in 2012 and an additional location in Shanghai in 2017. To incorporate more regional character, originality, and commonality of the Asian cultural belt into the programs, the gallery has had exhibitions with artists from various Asian countries including Singapore, China, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Ota Fine Arts strongly hopes these programs will convey a new aspect of contemporary art today.
In this exhibition, Mitsuke presents large platters and prismatic objects that he created with the idea of “architecture” in mind. The three-dimensional works have square-shaped and triangular surfaces—a completely different approach in comparison to his previous circular works, which have a clear central point around which the Kutani-yaki patterns are drawn. This new approach heavily influenced Mitsuke’s design of the large platters throughout the exhibition. With this show, Ota Fine Arts invites everyone to experience the artist’s world, which is rooted in tradition but continues to take on new challenges.
