To welcome the year of the Rabbit 2011, 100 Tonson Gallery proudly presents Yuree Kensaku’s brand new solo show “Shortcut to Melancholy Hill”. She is an outstanding and distinguished young Japanese-Thai artist. This time, we are presenting her solo show in town with her signature quirkiness on paintings by the use of vivid colors, often employed to create a hidden message. She always collects and records what she feels, sees, and experiences by blending her imagination to her works.
This exhibition will tell us about the changing surroundings and also politic liberty which led everything to violence and depression. It seems that we cannot find the feeling of security in anywhere. The artist would like to discover a best shortcut for escapade, but it’s rarely hard to find.
In 2010, Yuree has launched various works by participation with local and international activities such as Big Mountain music festival 2010, “For” wall painting exhibition at Bangkok Art and Culture Center, Bangkok, Thailand and the special illustration for music video of a song titled Pleng Pry by Pry & May-T Project (collaboration with Thai animator Yongvit Santanaphanich). Moreover, Yuree has also shown her large paintings as one of the selected 10 participants in Kuandu Biennale 2010, Taipei, Taiwan.
