SUGANO Yumiko MUG_7 2021 Oil on canvas 116.7 x 116.7 cm

Galerie Tokyo Humanité is pleased to present SUGANO Yumiko’s solo exhibition of new works. Sugano paints containers she collected from different countries for years. Those containers stand calmly and quietly in her painting as if they are portraits of humans. In the last 2 years with many limitations in daily life, Sugano asked her friends to send pictures of mugs they use daily and started to paint them. Thinking about friends she can’t see, Sugano made a quiet conversation with them while painting their mugs.

Sugano (b. 1960) received her B.A. in Painting from Tokyo Zokei University in 1986. She participated Biennale Sydney (1986), Asian Art Show (1989, Fukuoka Art Museum, the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Yokohama Museum of Art), and many other exhibitions around the world. Her conceptual sculptures were highly acclaimed, but after the solo exhibition in 1992, she stopped art activities. In 2007, she had her first solo exhibition in 15 years showcasing classical still-life paintings of containers.
