Gallery opening party@ Daikanyama

A young woman painter, Kamiya Kanako, whose style and energy I like, is having her third show. It combines her paintings and a fashion show of stuff w/ her work. A photographer who portrays loving couples was featured too. I'll add more tomorrow since I have a tummy ache and am not in the mood to type on my phone.

OK. As promised, here is her website. Apparently, the clothes that have her pictures on them are being sold somewhere in Marui Dept. The fashion show, to be honest, was kind of ho hum. I wasn't very impressed, but I'm no fashion expert. But as expected, I enjoyed seeing her evolution in her paintings from last time. Similar figures with the whole theme of 'dissatisfaction girls', but she experimented with more of a Japanese flavor in colors and and design. Last time, she used a lot of English text for statements about what these 'girls' were dissatisfied about...boredom, being tired, irked by little things that happen in everyday life. This time she focused more on images only and more details with faces versus overall scenes (like in a train, on a toilet, in a bedroom).

Anyway, I think she's great. If you have time, check her out. The Gallery is in the basement of La Fuente in Daikanyama. If you go, let me know what ya think, OK?

What about the pictures that don't have much clothes on them? Maybe you should have her decorate you for Burning Man :)

So this is the same artist whose stuff you have in your apartment?

I'd love to be decorated like that. Maybe YOU can decorate me!
