The first art exhibition in 2002 at Akko Gallery is The Breeze Through the Remains, no.2, By Mrs Masako Tadokoro, a Japanese artist living in Bangkok.

ABOUT THE ARTIST AND THE ART CONCEPT
Soon after graduating from Chiba University, where she studied Art Education, Masako won the Chiba Art Association Award in 1995. She then joined the Ko-Fu-Kai, where she met many good teachers, friends and advisers.
KO-FU-KAI is one of the biggest art societies in Japan and participates in the Nitten Art Show (largest art contest in Japan). KO-FU-KAI is made up of artists who practice Western styles; especially those who are influenced by Expressionism (trying to express ones heart and feelings by representational art).

Masako has been drawing and painting her daughters, (now 9 and 4 years old) for more than 5 years. She paints portraits because the lines of a persons figure hold a fascination for her; and she uses her daughters, because they are always available and model payment is not necessary!

ABOUT THE PAINTING WHICH WAS ACCEPTED FOR THE 2001 NITTEN ART SHOW
Masako wanted to paint her daughter and at the same time show to Japanese patrons that she was continuing her painting in Thailand. So, Masako put a Thai traditional dress on her daughter and surrounded her with Thai objects. This was the paining that was accepted for the 2001 Nitten Art Show.
For a piece of art to be accepted at the Nitten Art Show in Japan means that the artist is recognized to have attained a high level of skill.
Since coming to Thailand with her husband, when his company transferred him to Bangkok, her interest has concentrated on ancient architecture, made of red bricks, like the temples in Ayuttaya. Her paintings show that beauty still remains in these old buildings.

This exhibition at Akko Gallery will be her 2nd one in Bangkok. On show will be 30 oil painting of portraits and ancient monuments. Due to the KO-FU-KAI influence, Masako uses a palette knife, instead of a paint brush, most of the time. Using a palette knife enables an artist to paint a large area of the canvas in one go. This is highly risky, and requires a great deal of skill. Furthermore, the action of spreading the knife sometimes creates an unexpected mixture of color which is even better than originally intented. A very exciting moment.

The Passage, Strength, and Weight of Time are expressed in gentle, silent ways by the KO-FU-KAI and this is apparent in Masakos new paintings.
