MEGUMI OGITA GALLERY B1 2-16-12 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

We are pleased to announce Junpei Omori's 3rd solo exhibition "Release and Composition" at MEGUMI OGITA GALLERY.


Junpei Omori (b. 1979) studied pottery at Faculty of Art, Kyoto Seika University, and was shocked when he saw flame-shaped Jomon pottery, which are particularly decorative pieces in Jomon period (14,000 - 300 BCE), at a museum. He has created works on the subject of "Jomon" since then.In 2010, he won the first place in the general election at Montblanc Young Patronage and held a solo exhibition at Montblanc Ginza flagship store. In 2012, he participated in artist-in-residence in Denmark, and his works were collected at CLAY Museum of Ceramic Art Denmark. In the same year, he was featured on the front page of a New York newspaper as a representative at ASIA WEEK NY 2012.In recent years, he has held a solo exhibition, "JOUMON: resurrection & re-creation" at Gallery NAO MASAKI in Nagoya in 2019, and in the same year, he participated in "Art Basel" in Switzerland. He has been appraised not only in Japan, but also overseas.


In Omori's works, Jomon pottery is reproduced with modern decorativeness and vivid colors, and besides simple patterns such as a spiral pattern on the surface, alphabet letters are also arranged like symbols. The over vivid colors are by glazes ordered from the US.In recent years, the works have been created by splitting, painting and assembling them like a puzzle, reflecting the artist's experience of a major illness, the regeneration of life from subsequent surgery, and the reconstruction of himself and the world.


"What is happening to me now.

On October 17, 2019, I underwent abdominal conjugation surgery.

Reoperation of the abdomen through an incision to remove a tumor in the left side.

In order to spread the pulling force of the skin to both ends, the wound is sewn diagonally.

The wound on the body is a product of the expansion of meat and meat, and is very beautiful.

The act of connecting the broken pieces with a metal joint is like a life-saving act. Breaking one form and spinning it creates a new life. Repetition of itself.

What is happening to me now. "


In this exhibition, we will exhibit many works that directly reflect the artist’s own experiences. Please look forward to Omori Junpei's new solo exhibition "Release and Composition".
