Preview of Upcoming Ken Mihara Exhibition

Taking a relatively tattered airplane from Haneda (of which the interior hadn't been renovated since the 80's), I traveled afar to see artist Ken Mihara 三原研 (b.1958), who resides and works in the foothills of Izumo. Izumo, which today is more commonly known as Shimane Prefecture, is a land still coloured with the mysticism and mythology of ancient Japan. In its air and in its rivers, in its lakes and in its hills are the presence of Shinto gods.

At the same time, Mihara-sensei's works, both in their forms and their firings, embody the same primeval, even pristine clarity of an ancient spirituality of days passed.

Yufuku and Toku Art are proud to bring new works by the prominent artist in June. This new series, called Kigen (Beginning), finds Ken Mihara challenging new forms and an entirely new and difficult method of firing, which has added colors and landscapes that were previously unseen in his works.

There will be more in store, so stay tuned.
