"Kaoru Ueda (1928-) is a painter who delicately depicts the subject using photographs. It's known for cutting the “moments” of the fluid world, such as the raw egg, the ice cream scooped up with a spoon, the bubbles, and the stream of water that slips out of the shell. After studying oil painting at Tokyo University of the Arts, graduated as a graphic designer. However, from around 1970, he took a paintbrush again and presented a painting work that clearly depicts the subject, and received high praise. The vibrant colors and precise depictions capture the "instantaneousness" of the movement, and the tense works occupy a fixed position in the art trends since the 2000s when various realistic expressions have attracted attention. I will.
In this exhibition, Kaoru Ueda's half-century history will be traced through about 70 masterpieces from the beginning to the present, and about 10 prints and watercolors, totaling about 80 points.
