”Between Star and Man”
NYCoo happily presents a solo exhibition by one of our artists, Keico Watanabe.
14 years since her first NY exhibition titled "Between Star and Man" (1988), Watanabe's latest exhibition, also titled "Between Star and Man," continueswith her lifetime theme - stories evolves out of star-human relationship.
Watanabe's paintings remind us of the days when we enjoyed crayon drawing, singing and dancing, The days when we had not a care in the world. Take a look back and color yourself again with old memories and save yourself from losing your identity in this ever-changing world we live in. Appearing positive and waiting for the moment when a line assumes life, Watanabe's characters seem to greet us with ever-optimistic smiles.
Shining stars high above in the sky, richness of mother nature provided by four seasons, happiness of living in harmony with your neighbors. "These are what inspire me to paint," says Watanabe. The inaugural winner of S&R Foundation's Washington Award in 2001, Watanabe established NTCoo gallery in 2004 to provide the same fortunes she's been presented with to fellow Japanese artists. As the managing director of the galley, Watanabe, through regular exhibitions
as well as the annual open art competition. continued with her mission to introduceart to the public until last year when she took a year off from the daily operations of the gallery to prepare for this solo exhibition.
Brighter and more energetic than ever, "Between Star and Man" reflects the Watanabe's passion for the peace through art.
