London exhibition for fine artist Junko O'Neill
Fine artist Junko O'Neill opens a new solo exhibition in London, Interlude, featuring paintings inspired by the Japanese space and time concept of Ma.
The work of The Sorting Office-based artist is influenced by this spacial and temporal concept which can be translated as ‘gap’, ‘space’ or ‘pause’. Junko will showcase her new body of work both in abstract and figurative forms at Interlude which is being staged at The Coningsby Gallery from November 17 to 22.
‘Ma’ is a Japanese way of looking. It gives the intangible positive meaning. Empty space or time is not considered as a separate entity. The void created does not have a negative meaning, instead it suggests pregnant nothingness.
Speaking ahead of the exhibition, Junko said: "What I portray with my work is space, where time is seemingly halted but also where something has just happened or is about to happen. Emptiness is deliberately expressed in order to suggest potential."
Interlude will be staged from November 17 to 22 at The Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street, London W1T 4RT www.coningsbygallery.com
Exhibition Opening Times: Mon, Wed, Fri 10am-6pm, Tue & Thu 10am-9pm, Sat 10am-5pm (tbc)
