GODS, DREAMS & FAIRY TALES
We are excited to launch, for the first time in the UK, a collection of original paintings and a series of limited edition cushions by celebrated Japanese artist Kosuke Ajiro.
Medieval scrolls, tapestries, frescoes, quilts, folk-lore and dreams are all cited as inspiration for the artist. To look into one of Ajiro-san’s paintings is to get lost within another world, one full of mandrakes, winged-cardinals, puppets, flowers, mysterious writings, kings, queens and knights, forest creatures and tree roots.
Based in Tokyo, Kosuke Aijro is celebrated in Japan for his fascinating work, with several important solo exhibitions and publications in Japanese, we are delighted to make his work available to a wider audience.
Our immediate response to seeing Ajiro-san’s work for the first time was one of complete fascination. At once they recalled characters from an Angela Carter novel, illuminated mediaeval manuscripts and pages from ancient Herbals and alchemists’ books.
The twelve paintings are new works created exclusively for The Shop Floor Project.
