Onishi Gallery

Inoue Manji / David Stanley Hewett

The show brings together the work of two prominent artists based in Japan, one Japanese and one American. The two artists’ practices convey contrasting aspects of Japanese visual expression. Inoue Manji—a “Living National Treasure” and the embodiment of his country’s dedication to traditional philosophies, materials, and techniques—uses the purity of hakuji (white porcelain) to create works that offer a new perspective on Japanese minimalism. David Stanley Hewett, an American living in Japan, works in the medium of finest Japanese gold leaf applied to canvas or wood, preserving and re-imagining a heritage of gorgeous decoration with its roots in elite samurai culture.

Kogei and Art

Originally coined to translate the word “craft,” today the term KOGEI has a higher significance, denoting works that, even at their most innovative, use materials and methods that have stood the test of time and reflect an unrivaled dedication to technical perfection and refinement, from generation to generation over many centuries. The works in this exhibition include those in ceramics, metal, and lacquer by both well-established artists and newcomers to the field.
