Toshio Shibata and Toeko Tatsuno open their first joint exhibition in New York at Laurence Miller Gallery
Toeko Tatsuno, Water Level II, 2004.
NEW YORK, NY.- Laurence Miller Gallery presents Toshio Shibata and Toeko Tatsuno: Given, their first joint exhibition in New York. Whereas Shibata’s photographs have been widely exhibited in the US, Tatsuno’s paintings have rarely been seen outside Asia. This exhibition follows their very large two person show last year at the National Arts Center in Tokyo.

Shibata, born 1949, and Tatsuno, born 1950, founded the collective the Cosmos Factory while classmates at the Tokyo University of the Arts. He evolved into photography while she pursued painting and printmaking. Both exhibit a highly abstract vision, and share many formal ideas while pursuing their individual mediums.

Shibata is regarded as the preeminent Japanese contemporary landscape photographer, concentrating on civil engineering projects such as dams, waterfalls, and irrigation sluices. Tatsuno embraces abstract ideas and geometric forms creating lush paintings and one-of-a-kind prints. Hung side by side, a lively conversation develops between photography and painting, realism and abstraction, and together they make us more aware of architectonic forms that surround us but that we rarely pay attention to.

Toshio Shibata’s photographs will be featured in a one-person show opening April 17 at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass., and Toeko Tatsuno’s paintings will be exhibited in a group show opening April 20 at the Ohara Museum of Art/Ohara Contemporary, Kurashiki, Japan.
