As part of an effort to get my work seen in galleries oversees I spent the morning looking at contemporary art gallery sites in Japan and Canada. I’ve long been interested in Japanese art, architecture and culture and although I’ve never been there I feel a strong connection to this country. Canada I have been to on a number of occasions and like for its people and exciting multi-cultural cities.
So anyway, I found this picture of the Maru Contemporary Art Gallery in Japan and was stuck by this wonderful space. As it happens the gallery only shows Japanese artists so there is no opportunity for me to use it directly. Still however curious to see what my work would look like in this setting I cheekily took to playing the digital curator in PhotoShop. I probably could have done a better job, but its good enough to get an impression of how the space and art would compliment each other.
Be sure to check out the Maru Gallery as it has some interesting artists represented.
