“Toru Kuwakubo A Calendar for Painters without Time Sense.12/12” Exhibition Catalogue

Tomio Koyama Gallery is pleased to announce Toru Kuwakubo’s solo exhibition “A Calendar for Painters without Time Sense. 12/12” (until February 7, 2021) at Chigasaki City Museum of Art, Kanagawa, Japan.

The “Calendar Series,” which he started producing in 2014, depicting the respective lives of great masters within art history upon a single canvas, was finally completed in 2020. The solo exhibition at the Chigasaki City Museum of Art will be the first presentation to gather all the paintings and drawings from this series.

In the “Calendar Series,” prominent painters selected by Kuwakubo, such as Munch, Van Gogh, and Modigliani, are each assigned a month in the calendar, and the works, studios, and lives of these artists are expressed as spectacular spaces of alternate dimension through manner of Kuwakubo’s own interpretation, serving as an ultimate homage that gives rise to a certain resonance that transcends both time and space.
