The Poetry of Fragments Lacquer art by Mine Tanigawa A solo exhibition 7.4 - 1.5.2022

Curated and presented by The Gallery by SOIL

The Gallery by SOIL is proud to present the second solo exhibition of Mine Tanigawa titled “The Poetry of Fragments”.

A graduate of the Kyoto City University of Art, Japan, Mine Tanigawa is a contemporary Japanese lacquer artist whose lacquer sculptures display supple lines and curves. The well-crafted sculptures are unique, and the contemporary lacquer art embodies lightness with interesting structural forms. The lacquer pieces are polished and exquisitely made to perfection using contemporary material like fibre-reinforced plastic with urushi (Japanese lacquer) and crafted with traditional lacquer techniques.
