    PROFILE
    Tomoya Arai creates essential tools for daily life. Some of his pieces have a soft appearance, which he achieves through his distinctive hand-sculpting technique, while his white wood pieces have a rough appearance achieved through purposeful sword cuts that are left visible on the surface. He was born in Osaka in 1983 and moved to Tokyo at the age of 19. He started carving wood at age 23 and the following year, he held his first one-man exhibition at Saruyama in Motoazabu. Arai later moved to Kochi, where he concentrates on his artistic activities (and harvests his own crops) surrounded by the natural beauty of Shimanto.

    Yaser Shaw “Delivery Information”

    Yaser Shaw’s collection of hand spun, hand woven and hand stitched pashmina stoles made from traditional techniques of Kashmir - region of the northwestern Indian subcontinent - will be available at A&S Aoyama and several other A&S stores from Saturday, February 15th.

    The original pashmina material is extremely delicate and cannot withstand the pressure caused by machines. By carefully spinning and weaving these materials, they eventually acquire a natural texture which creates an exquisite drape and softness once you put them on. Also, the key to Shaw’s diverse design lies in the meticulous embroidery which is sought after not only by women but also by men. Sophisticated patterns are exquisitely created without adding any stress on the material.

    Please come and select your favorite piece among our collection which we handpicked in India. We look forward to your visit.

    Kazumi Tsuji + factory zoomer — “Rainbowder”

    For the third time, ARTS&SCIENCE welcomes the glass artist, Kazumi Tsuji for an exhibition from Saturday, October 26th through Monday, November 4th (Japanese national holiday) at our venue, AT THE CORNER. Together with colorful glass pieces, the exhibition will also feature “Rainbowder (border of rainbows)” which aims to see things from various perspectives. This will be the final exhibition for AT THE CORNER.

    The artist will be at the venue on Saturday, October 26th. We look forward to seeing you there.

    『Five years ago, it was in New York where I sat the Rainbow Parade for the first time. The parade was full of people advocating the idea of “genderless”. Among the participants, there were also quite a number of misogynists, people with handicaps and immigrants. That’s when I realized that the rainbow was the symbol of not only a genderless society but also a determination of the people to create a discrimination-free society. It is nearly 15 years since I have been working with the theme of “color”. My hope is that I would like to slowly tackle the major problem of discrimination through colors and everyday objects like glasses. And for this exhibition, I am taking another step to work on rainbows—but let’s not forget the importance of elements like “kawaii” too. — Kazumi Tsuji』

    Kenichi Takanaka “Nanako vol.3”

    From Friday, September 13th through Monday, 23rd (Japanese national holiday), HIN Arts & Science Nijodori Kyoto will be hosting our fourth exhibition featuring Kenichi Takanaka.

    Takanaka is known for the use of various techniques such as painting and inlaying, but for this exhibition, we will mainly focus on his “nanako”, which uses a graver to hammer small circular patterns on the earthenware. Some patterns will also feature sceneries which the artist saw as he walked through towns and characters he loved when he was a child. Takanaka says that in recent years, he was finally able to fulfill his free expression which transcended many differences. Please don’t miss this occasion to experience his works.

    One early morning, I was reading Li Bai’s poem out loud in my study with the window fully open when a white-eye came to a mulberry tree in front of the window and started pecking on the blackened berries. It was so near that I could almost touch it. But the bird was busy pecking and didn’t seem to mind my voice at all. Leaving my feeling of joy aside, I decided I should be like the bird
    and concentrated on Li’s poem.
