Junko O’Neill: Fragments of Time




Private View 20 March 6.30 – 9.30, RSVP required

Have you ever experienced being drawn into the space within a painting and sensing the transient atmosphere that the work conveys?

The Japanese artist, Junko O’Neill, presents a thought-provoking and comprehensive body of work with her first solo exhibition in London.

The work of her figurative and abstract paintings as well as 3D pieces are all inspired by the space/time concept of ‘Ma’, which is unique to Japanese culture. The concept considers space as fundamentally void: only space itself is deemed to be eternal and everything that fills the space is of a transient nature. O’Neill also sources ideas for her works from Japanese literature such as Haruki Murakami’s novels. She finds these novels and her work share the same sense of time passing within the space. 

 

The exhibition is complemented by a series of diverse public programme events to take place at the gallery
