Reina Sugihara "Frame"

2022. 6. 26 Sun - 7. 24 Sun

MISAKO & ROSEN is pleased to announce first solo exhibition with Reina Sugihara. Reina Sugihara was born (1988) and presently lives and works in Tokyo.

Reina Sugihara paints viscerally; simultaneously viscous and static, her paintings picture haptic moments, the body abstracted and re-presented in a mix of matter and memory. Second-handedly sculptural, Sugiharafs paintings are constructed via her response to both anatomical drawings as well as an object, the weight and texture of which she measures through touch prior to painting. A sense of frozen time is achieved through her use of both forms and color that suggest a more historical painting without drawing upon a specific period or palette.
