After a successful debut at Parades Gallery in Matsumoto, Japan, we are delighted to bring this wonderful group show to a UK audience. Join us for the second instalment of SOMETHING MADE DIFFERENT – a collaborative exhibition of new works by 5 international artists, inspired by Japanese imagery and experiences.
The juxtaposition of Japan’s rich cultural heritage sitting alongside unique social and pioneering technological environments lends itself to diverse responses. Each artist has spent time in various parts of Japan, which has informed their individual take on a country of great contrasts. Photographs, paintings, textiles and mixed media installations will be on view throughout in the B&B gallery space throughout July.
Summer is here and it is time for SOMETHING MADE DIFFERENT.
This Friday is the opening of SOMETHING / MADE / DIFFERENT a four person exhibition at Parades gallery in Matsumoto Japan with artwork by Jo Peel, Chris Jarratt, Owen Richards and myself. The exhibition will travel to Tokyo later in the year.
Something made differentとは今あるものを別のものにするという意味があります。

****** OPENING RECEPTION
So I finally went back to Japan again after a mere 9 years went by since I was there last. This time I was painting a big mural in Betsukai/別海町 Hokkaido and visiting my good friend Mika and her family. Mika has been a tremendous help with organizing everything. Weather was really hot and we had to paint at the end of the day when the sun starts going down. The rest of the time was just about eating amazing food, tasting sake and hanging out with the cat.
It was just amazing.
First day was all about finding a solution to get to the top.
