Opening Reception 1/26

Kosuke Miki -Here,I am.-

Kosuke Miki was born and raised in Oita. He has been taking pictures since he had an opportunity to visit foreign countries. He didn't much like to be around people for long periods of time. In 2013, Kosuke realized that it was wonderful to meet and build many relationships. He has begun studying psychology at the Japan Mental Health Association in Tokyo. He participated in a photography workshop to learn to capture relationships between people. While learning psychology and photography, he began focusing on the "being". The recognition that the time that passes during everyday life can never return. The experience of the person who sits in the company of others is different every day, from the location of the sun to the light that comes through windows, even the familiar bus or train changes. The weeds and the flowers along the way are always at different stages of growth, too. He's taking pictures in order to express that, in daily life, each moment is a precious, beautiful, and dear thing. He aims show that people who see pictures can remember it for themselves, too. Kosuke takes pictures of his "being" so others can feel something close to his daily life working as a programmer.

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!"
