Miwa Ogasawara




ISBN: 9783777437170 Category:

Kristine Bilkau, Nicola Graef, Sayako Mizuta


People between light and shade, love and despair, closeness and distance, calm and restlessness. Miwa Ogasawara’s painting represents the attempt to approach Man quietly in all his nuances. In her pictures she captures the brittle, shimmering present, the beauty and the fragility of our existence.

Miwa Ogasawara explores in her works the question of the relationship between Man, space and time. Whether the figure is standing at the centre of the composition, whether it is to be found on the boundaries between the interior and the exterior, or whether it evaporates, it always asserts its omnipresence. Her pictures are painted moments of reflection, in which the countless impressions, feelings and thoughts of her protagonists come to life. This volume presents a selection of 80 works including some of the latest ones, accompanied by two essays.
