T his July S│2 London presents two exhibitions of Tsuyoshi Maekawa and Ewen Henderson.
Gallery One will exhibit works by Japanese artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa, focusing primarily on the artist’s post-Gutai practice dating from as early as 1969 through to 1978. The Gutai Group dissolved in 1972 following the passing of its founder Jiro Yoshihara and for many of its members it symbolised the end of an era, but it also paved the way for many to evolve and re-invent their artistic methods and processes, drawing on the fertile and experimental Gutai years as an impetus for a discovery of a new language of materialisation.
Gallery Two will contain pieces by British sculptor Ewen Henderson. Henderson attended Camberwell College of Art in 1965 where he studied ceramics under Lucie Rie and Hans Coper. Though academically trained, Henderson’s practice quickly transformed into new expressive style with irregular, asymmetrical forms and experimental glazes and textures. His work can be found in the permanent collections of some of the world’s major museums such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, The Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
