Miwa Ogasawara


A selection of Miwa Ogasawara’s paintings that explores the quiet connections of humanity.

People between light and shade, love and despair, closeness and distance, calmness and restlessness. Miwa Ogasawara’s paintings represent the attempt to approach humanity quietly in all its nuance. In her pictures, she captures the brittle, shimmering present, the beauty and fragility of our existence. Ogasawara explores the relationship between humans, space, and time. Whether the figure is standing at the center of the composition, whether it is to be found on the boundaries between the interior and the exterior, or whether it evaporates, it always asserts its omnipresence. Her pictures are painted moments of reflection, in which the countless impressions, feelings, and thoughts of her protagonists come to life. This volume presents a selection of eighty works, including some of Ogasawara’s most recent, accompanied by two essays.
