Mitsumasa Kadota Solo Exhibition


M-Gallery (Tochigi, April 2016)
This was the first solo exhibition I held at M-Gallery which currently represents me. The show was composed of key pieces produced between 2009 and 2016. Commenting on the varying and evolving nature of my work, the critic Tomoyuki Mitsui contributed an essay titled “What makes Kadota’s work so difficult yet so alluring?” to my first published collection of works. In it, he suggests that my shifting style and fascination with the ambiguity of painting contain latent potential.
