Yuki Kano - "Figurative Studies"

Yuki Kano is a visual artist from Tokyo, Japan, whose work ranges from representational to geometric/abstract art inspired by nature, music, and her life in both the city and the suburbs of New York. She works in different mediums depending on the project and creates works on paper or canvas that are intricate or realistic.

Having a father who likes to draw and a mother who is crafty, she always had a fascination with art. She spent her childhood in both China and Japan and attended American and International schools throughout middle school, where art was always her favorite subject. She involved herself in many of the creative opportunities that were offered, and after winning an award at her school’s book mark design competition and her year book cover design was chosen during middle school, she decided that she wanted to become a designer.

She moved to the United States to continue her education, and felt for the first time that her skills in art were nothing compared to the other art students that she had encountered.  With the notion that the art world is competitive, along with the negative stereotype of “starving artists”, she abandoned her dream of becoming a designer. She pursued psychology in college, which was another interest to her, and also studied art therapy, but in the end, she realized that she needs to be in the art world and earned a BFA in Mixed Studios from Long Island University. 

She is currently living and working in New York City, and has had numerous solo exhibitions and group shows around New York.

Live Dance Performance
Baliasi Dance
 
The one and only genre that has a theme that mixes a variety of dances and culture on the theme of "beauty and healing of different space", one of the themes to various changes (variations).  Even works in the beautiful nature, the elements of fire and water, the animal at the time.  And characterized by free expression.  It consists of modern dance and Balinese dance, which are Chie Norieda individual culture. Its view of the world that shoots from the barrier of dance is a dance feel that contains a little bit of eerie as "nostalgia" and "beauty," and spread to the underlying "love". It invites those who watch it to a "different space" to discover the "healing" there. Choreography and unique production attracts a wide variety of artists, music, theater, video, painting, planting, fragrance, hair makeup, nail art and costumes. There have been various collaborations and solo performances in Italy, and Singapore including a guest appearance. Also in Hawaii, the Czech Republic, Spain and abroad. Mysterious and supple movements allow this dance art to conceal more and more the possibility of shining.
 
WELCOME TO OUCHI GALLERY!

No, not "ouch". Pronounced OOH-WOO-CH-I, Ouchi is Japanese for "home" or "house". Our gallery is named Ouchi because we display artwork by contemporary Japanese artists in a home-like setting.
 
Art should be more than a business commodity. It should transform into our daily lives, awakening us with new thoughts and passions each day. The best art teaches that there are no limits to individual pursuits; that our own possibilities are infinite.
 
When you visit Ouchi Gallery, we hope that you feel both at home and inspired. Perhaps you will feel something exhilarating—a positive "ouch!"
