TWS (TOKYO WONDER SITE): Ever since its opening in 2001, Tokyo Wonder Site has undertaken a wide range of programs to support and foster young artists. One such program, TWS-Emerging, is associated with the open call exhibition, Tokyo Wonder Wall, which has been providing talented young artists with a gateway to success. Each year, 100 artists are selected from approximately 1000 applicants, and their works are displayed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. Furthermore, the prize winners have their own exhibition at the public spaces in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building.
TWS-Emerging offers the opportunity for those selected artists to take part in another exhibition at Tokyo Wonder Site. We have introduced about 200 artists so far. For this year, 19 young artists were chosen to show their works at TWS Shibuya. They are also invited to participate in a number of programs at TWS as well as residency programs conducted in association with overseas residencies under TWS's international exchange programs.

2014.04.04(FRI.)— 04.27(SUN.)
OPEN ON FRI., SAT., & SUN. 12:00 〜18:00
WEEKDAY APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE

OPENING RECEPTION ON 04.04(FRI.)18:00 〜20:00

We are pleased to present “ eeny, meeny, miny, moe | RED ” a group exhibition of six artists: Tamotsu Ikeya, Shingo Tanaka, Shunsuke Kano, Keisuke Matsuda, Katsuyuki Shirako, and Masahiro Sekiguchi.

“Colors” play a critical role in the creation of art. Indeed, just a single color, selected out of millions, can determine the fate of an artwork, for better of for worse. In “eeny, meeny, miny, moe | RED,” the six artists exhibit their works … created with an assigned color – RED.

We hope this group exhibition challenge the six artists to present what the meaning color RED signifies to them, to handle the color RED in unique ways, and to make compelling use of the color RED. We also hope “eeny, meeny, miny, moe | RED” will be fascinating for all of us.

Tamotsu Ikeya
b0284698_19212735.jpg

Untitled, 440 x 320 mm, oil on canvas, 2014

*I paint over and over many hours on canvas in order to join into one the tension of day to day change.
*I extract shapes from original drawings, using the power of the shape while painting.
*I am careful of the how the light falls from the paint and the “heaviness” of the work as I paint.
by Tamotsu Ikeya

layer of labor_50 (tape on lumber), 706 x 712 x 712 mm, type c print, lumber, tape, 2014

For some reason, at times people, projecting their voices clearly while using language they regularly use, fail to establish a conversation. The subject’s outlines are quite clear so the “What is it” easily understood, but for some reason there is a status of complete incomprehension. In this unsettling situation, there is the possibility that a completely separate interpretation can be reached. Not just simple confusion, I want to create clearly this complex situation.
by Shunsuke Kano








Katsuyuki Shirako

untitled, 62 x 55 x 28 mm, Japanese lime tree, pigments, gelatin glue, 2014

My works do not have any special intrinsic meaning. Rather they just exist, containing a complexity of random images.
by Katsuyuki Shirako








Masahiro Sekiguchi
b0284698_19245325.jpg

Tooku no shomen #1, 1,070 x 760 mm, oil on canvas, 2012

I want to understand as much as possible about paintings. Materials, techniques, conditions, merits, demerits, possibilities - now and in the future. Preservation, storage, repair distribution, consumption, context, discourse, historical value, regional character – all and everything associated with paintings. Starting first with materials and techniques.
by Masahiro Sekiguchi








Shingo Tanaka
b0284698_1925468.jpg

painting #8, 910 x 652 mm, oil on canvas, 2014

I feel an uneasy existence on the other side of the violent movements beyond the one ability to track and the colors that dazzle the eye as you look at the flame above a traditional Japanese Candles. Are flames-always shifting, without either a clear form or substance, and unable to be caught or tasted-really something just right there. Only the ashes left once the flame has expired and the feeling aroused within myself can tie together such an existence.
by Shingo Tanaka








Keisuke Matsuda
b0284698_19262572.jpg

untitled, 460 x 335 mm, oil on canvas, 2013

I paint the images assimilating my senses to the reality in life. My expressions should be as explanatory as possible so that they become realistic.

open on fri., sat., and sun. 12:00-18:00

opening reception: 18:00-20:00 on February 1st

The reality of my life and my feelings directly connect with my vision. I have been challenging to paint exactly what come into mind. For this exhibition, I try to stabilize the reality of my life, my expression by oil paints, and the image I see in mind onto canvas.
Keisuke Matsuda


Born in 1984. Keisuke Matsuda graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts with MFA of oil painting. In 2009, he won The Jury (Naoki Sato) Award in ART AWARD TOKYO. In 2013, his work was exhibited at Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo after being selected for TOKYO WONDER WALL.

Matsuda says that he becomes united with the world surrounding himself when he succeeds in painting or drawing the images that appear in his mind before they disappear. Over time, his works have progressed in sophistication and having accomplished expressing these pure images onto canvas. In STANBILIZATION, Matsuda’s fifth solo exhibition at eN arts, observers will enjoy Mtsuda’s latest paintings in which he stabilizes those pure images with touches of artistic elements. Matssusa’s bold compositions, powerful and persuasive brushstrokes, and unique color combinations will remain embedded in observers’ mind. We hope you will enjoy Matsuda’s world.
