【複製】The infatuation and intoxication of a painter in love

Выставочные залы 1-3

Sapporo-born painter Migishi Kotaro (1903-1934) said to his wife Setsuko, “If I die, you won’t be able to paint good pictures again until you fall for someone else.
To Migishi Kotaro, falling in love—being infatuated, intoxicated, by someone or something—was an endless source of inspiration for artistic creation.
“The streets are his opium; he brings home so many different pieces of the streets. The streets quench his thirst for the surreal, the mysterious. Windows with the latest fashions, Western curio stores, ladieswear store windows, myriad cheap goods, the Rococo style, Western-style windows, windows. He is extraordinarily astute; he can find pearls in a dirty, rundown corner of the city.” (Migishi Setsuko, Notes on Migishi Kotaro.)
This exhibition focuses on the motifs that Kotaro was infatuated with, intoxicated by, as we take you into the world of his art.
Phase I (December 16 – February 25) comprises three sections: An Aspiration for Modern Life, Into an Exotic World, and The Arrival of a Muse. Phase 2 (March 1 – April 18) comprises four: Clowns and Marionettes, A New World Called Music, Butterflies and Shells, and Northern Landscapes. Each features prominent works of Kotaro’s.
Migishi Kotaro was so deeply moved by beauty that he forgot himself in its presence. This is how he opened up his world of fresh new images. Step into the world of his infatuation and intoxication.
