MISAKO & ROSEN is pleased to announce our next exhibition, a two person show gpainting paintingh featuring new works by Tokyo based artist Fuminao Suenaga and Ohio based artist Scott Olson.
gPainting Paintingh presents a dialogue between two differing approaches towards present day abstract painting.
Fuminao Suenaga was born in Yamaguchi, Japan in 1974. Suenaga graduated with a degree in painting from Tokyo Zokei University in 1999 and continues to live and work in Tokyo. Suenaga begins from a considered, contextual position and subsequently produces work relating to everyday encounters and, more specifically, everyday sights.
Scott Olson was born in 1976 and is based in Ohio. Olson received an
MFA in painting (2009) from Ohio State University. In 2002, Olson
completed a two year residency at the Center For Contemporary Art
(CCA) in Kitakyushu. Olson's work has been presented in numerous solo
and group exhibitions internationally including Taxter and
Spengemann,New York, Overduin and Kite, Los Angeles and Galerie
Scott Olson creates abstractions which utilize historical techinique and strategy as material. Conceptual in origin the actual paintings, produced in a relatively modest size, exist as painted studies retaining an immediacy inherent in the process of their creation.
