Japanese artist Shiori Eda presents a large polyptych of 6 canvases at A2Z Art Gallery
A2Z Art Gallery in Paris, presents ‘Genesis’ by Shiori Eda, from September 12 to October 3, 2020. The exhibition unveils a polyptych made of 6 canvases, all measuring 100 cm wide by 150 cm high. Each panel dialogues with a previously produced work. For example a wave recalls the work of the artist "Tsunami" presented in 2017, a woman sitting on top of a mountain recalls the work "Chowa" presented in 2019. The artist plunges us into a relationship with Nature sometimes physical (a woman linked to the five elements, sometimes spiritual (a naked woman next to a giant apple tree reminiscent of the original Eve of the Book of Genesis). The artist will also be present at Asia Now in October 2020

Nature is omnipresent in the artist's work and asserts itself as a pure and essential form, outside human times. For his first solo exhibition at Pierre-Yves Caër Gallery, Akira Kugimachi will exhibit two Series: Air and Snowscape. His Series "Air" "is a very visual work as it captures the moment of a scene on canvas that moves very stealthily and reveals the air".
