Makoto Ofune

7 March – 20 May 2017

This catalogue was published on the occasion of the Makoto Ofune solo exhibition, 7 March - 20 May 2017 at Olivier Malingue.


Olivier Malingue is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in the UK of Japanese artist Makoto Ofune. The exhibition is a survey of works produced over the past decade which combine traditional Japanese painting techniques with an abstract vocabulary, revealing his search for eternity and harmony. By creating an atmosphere that invites meditation, he proposes that the viewer considers not only the pieces themselves, but also the space created by them.
