Earlier this month, the Michael Ku Gallery in Taipei, Taiwan, opened “Convolvulus,” a two-person exhibition featuring two of Japan’s rising art stars, Hideaki Kawashima and Atsushi Fukui. Convolvulus is a species of flowering plant, although it’s not clear how that relates to Kawashima and Fukui. Perhaps it has something to do with the ethereal beauty of these two artists’ works. Regardless, the artists are well-suited to show together, as they both typically portray dreamlike or otherworldly images: Kawashima with his disembodied heads with flowing hair and piercing eyes, and Fukui with his illustrative paintings of natural and narrative scenes. The show runs until November 22.
