October 4 - October 27, 2019
Whitestone Ginza New Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition, “Vanity of vanities“ by Osamu Watanabe. Watanabe is known for sublimating sweets decoration into art. Lots of whipped cream covering; a skull decorated with colorful fruits; famous impressionist paintings; stuffed deer and so on. Lovely works at first sight, however, once they occupy the space as a mass, they begins to show its grotesque. It can be said that the excessively decorated various motifs reflect vanity in a man of today. This exhibition is consisted of a motif of “vanity”. Words from the Old Testament is also cited, expressing new “Vanitas” by sweets. We cordially invite you to come visit this precious opportunity.
