    Kenichi Takanaka | Nanako

    It is our pleasure to announce the exhibition “Nanako” by painter, calligrapher, and potter Kenichi Takanaka. “Nanako” is the artist’s second exhibition at ARTS&SCIENCE and it will be presented in both Tokyo and Kyoto.

    “Nanako” is a method of creating a relief pattern that resembles fish roe. The craftsman is said to “beat” or “sow” the texture into a surface using a special Nanako chisel. The exhibition will showcase 100 works that Kenichi Takanaka has created around the theme of soil, accompanied by a hanging calligraphic scroll.

    The wife pitied the hen that was killed by the weasel, and she made a soup out of its corpse. She was in awe after taking one bite, saying, “The weasel must have been a skillful killer.” The taste of flesh is equal to how well you kill. Kenichi Takanaka

    PROFILE
    Kenichi Takanaka was born in Toride-shi, Ibaraki in 1966. An autodidact, Takanaka began his education at Gakushuin University, later leaving in order to teach himself the techniques of calligraphy, painting, and pottery. In 1993 he set up his kiln and studio in Otaki, Chiba, where he devotes himself to his artistic activities. Takanaka’s works are exhibited in various art galleries in Japan and abroad.
