The gallery is pleased to announce our first participation at Kiaf SEOUL. Rare 1960s works by Gutai’s Minoru Onoda will be presented along with a 12 inch Cube by Light and Space artist Larry Bell, as well as a large painting and Mirage Works. With one exception, all works come directly from the artists’ estates. Gutai’s Minoru Onoda (1937 – 2008) and Light and Space artist Larry Bell (b. 1939) separately opted to explore the circle and the perception of light, space and depth. While Onoda started to use found objects (vacuum tubes) to insert a 3rd dimension in his works and present circles in the paintings’ structure in 1960, he quickly proceeded to paint circles and spheres in various styles. Oil paintings from the 1960s, relief works with gofun, and 2 large iconic concentric circle works from the late 1970s demonstrate his passion for this shape. Bell started to work with glass and mirror shards in the 1960s to focus on the properties of light and space. He incorporates the aesthetics of minimalism and integrates the ephemeral in his practice by vacuum plating thin film deposits to coat glass cubes and large sculptures, canvas and Hiromi Paper, all of which interact and reflect light, space and colors on pristine flat surfaces.
