PAGIC Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of Shoichi Tsurukawa.
Tsurukawa uses a dyeing technique called “tsutsugaki,” in which he paints his works as if projecting his inner, mixed world.
Tsurukawa creates a unique matiere by sewing the dyed fabric and creating a three-dimensional effect, which makes the most of the characteristics of the support medium, cotton cloth.
The composition of his paintings, which are based on “precision” and “delicacy,” can be said to be the very act of gouging out the artist’s sensitive feelings.
The stubborn core of the artist’s desire to depict the essence of human nature – something common to all human beings with the surface scraped off – never fades away, and the artist’s “ideals” and “life” pile up like debris shattered by reality.
The world of Shoichi Tsurukawa, drowning in colorful joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure, exists here.

Tomii’s artworks were created by the bargaining of ‘temperature,’ ‘time,’ and ‘gravity’ using clay and glass.
They fundamentally contain the strength of nature and life, a profound serenity, and a gentleness that universally connects to them all.
Her experimental approach, in which she constantly repeats “reaction” and “transformation” in pursuit of a form suitable for her own expression, is her specialty. By diverting hand building, she aims to express the intimacy of different materials, clay and glass. She explores the ambiguity of erosion and boundary in the world woven by the different materials.
The process of removing a work of art buried in pure white talc powder from the kiln, where the temperature has been lowered over time, is like that of budding crystals carefully dug out from a field of snow. It forms delicate colors and shapes.
Tomii adds a mineral attraction to the glass, seeking a method to interact with the glass itself.
Born in Yamagata Pref., 1997.
Graduated from Akita Public University of Arts, Course of Creative Manufacturing Design.
Completed a master’s degree in glass art at Tokyo University of the Arts in 2022.
Currently working as a trainee at the Seto City New Century Crafts Museum.
From 12-23 Sat, 2022 Through 1-31 Tue. 2023

PAGIC Gallery will produce the gallery area in “make (a) camp,” which will be open grand open on December 23.
This is the flagship space for a limited-time project by Camp Inc. at Shibuya Hikarie Creative Space 8/.

If you are in Shibuya, please stop by Hikarie 8/.
SUZAKISEREN continues to draw one scene and another from each character’s daily life as if she were randomly creating a patchwork cloth. Therefore, you can only find part of the story from one painting/drawing.
The first book of SUZAKI’S works “/” consists of 400 paintings drawn from 2012 to 2020, arranged in order of the story. Reading the book lets you see the big picture and understand what each artwork depicts.
SUZAKISEREN will continue to fulfill and expand the huge patchwork.
