HARUKA is an artist who uses various materials and techniques to paint people and events that left a deep impression in her life. He has exhibited not only in Japan but also in the United States and Spain, and will hold a solo exhibition titled "Rebirth" at FOAM CONTEMPORARY. “Resuscitation” refers to the restoration of “life” to a person who has died or is in a similar state, and is also called “resurrection” or “Yomigaeri”.
People are born many times in their lives. Just like a withered flower blooms again, even a difficult situation can be overcome with passion. This time, we will exhibit works with the theme of such death and rebirth.

・Artist Statement

I have been drawing since childhood.
When I saw what happened when I moved to New York and the happy faces of people who saw my paintings, I thought, "Maybe this is what I can do to make people happy."
In 2015, he returned to Japan and started his artistic activities in earnest.

Through my experiences of visiting various countries and cities, I have been able to embody the individuality and energy of places and people, the connections between people, as well as my inner thoughts and emotions, and look at things and emotions from multiple perspectives rather than just looking at them from one side. In his paintings, he captures people and events on the surface and expresses them concretely, while in his semi-stereoscopic works, he abstractly expresses the inner part of emotions that cannot be seen from the surface.

In the book series, one person is likened to one bookshelf, and "a moment of a person is expressed as one page of a book."

“FOAM'' is an intermediate form that combines “LIQUID'', which is an image of flexible planning content, and “SOLID,'' a space that is fully equipped as a conventional white cube. An expression space that reflects the art scene of books from multiple angles.

The first “O” in the logo is intentionally deformed to create the image of bubbles. While expressing the contemporary art scene itself, which is changing day by day, it expresses the image of the artist's free and flexible expression that exists infinitely.
We will introduce various notable artists regardless of career or age as an expression space that explores and fosters the value and real pleasure of art that transcends the life cycle while staying close to the actuality of the times.
