Keiko Gallery feature, Japanese artists

Keiko Gallery - Special feature on Japanese artists - Ceramics Now Magazine

SPECIAL FEATURE: Keiko Gallery - Japanese artists, October 2011

In partnership with Keiko Gallery
Written review of “Keiko Gallery” through interviews with represented Japanese artists who work in ceramics, lacquer, textiles and jewelry.

Keiko Gallery is one of the most appreciated art galleries in the United States that focuses on Japanese art, from ceramics to the innovative lacquer art, textiles, jewelry and painting. Founded in 2003 in Boston, MA, the gallery organized numerous exhibitions of world-recognized Japanese artists.

The special feature includes interviews with 10 artists represented by Keiko Gallery, and lots of images with their works. We took this opportunity because we want to introduce the Japanese contemporary art and craft to a larger audience around the world. It is an excellent chance for our readers to learn more from Japanese artists, to see how they think and how they imagine their works.

Keiko Gallery feature

"I started the gallery in 2003 because I really loved contemporary Japanese arts and crafts and I wanted to work with the artists.

When I am searching for a new artist, I check the events in museums and galleries on the internet, and if I am interested in collaborating with them, I make contact. The people in the arts and crafts are connected in Japan, so once I knew several important artists, it wasn’t so difficult to get the contacts. Someone always introduces me to new Japanese artists.

I would like to do my best in promoting the contemporary lacquer art in the world. While ceramic and textile art experienced a modernizing transformation in the late 1950’s and 1960’s, the contemporary lacquer movement has developed more slowly and did not begin to flourish until the 1980’s. Since I know that there are many talented lacquer artists in Japan, I want to spread the seeds in USA.
And I am thrilled to be involved in this new stream of art history. I would have to say that there is a border between fine arts and the arts developed from craft, however I believe that the stereotype will be changed in the future. I am willing to work with the artists who are challenging projects which will not be forgotten.”
Keiko Fukai, Owner and Director of Keiko Gallery
