Guest Artist: Tsukasa Ono: Paintings

Guest Artist: Tsukasa Ono: Paintings – July 29 – August 16, 2008

A long established and honored painter in his native Japan, Tsukasa Ono will have his first American solo show at the Blue Mountain Gallery in Chelsea July 29th through August 16th, 2008.

The artist will present the images he has most recently been developing. There are the large, thoughtful paintings (based on tree roots) in which he searches for his own sense of personal ‘roots ‘ in human existence. And there are the impish “oni” creations, in which Mr. Ono playfully introduces us to the many aspects of these denizens of Japanese folklore. Large and small, these works reflect the maturity of mind and the surety of hand that Mr. Ono has accomplished. And, he gives us a very special glimpse inside a world of strong traditions and vibrant sensibilities.

There will be a reception for the artist, Thursday, July 31st, 5-8PM. Please join us and meet this extraordinary artist at that time.
