FOIL GALLERY is pleased to announce Suzuki Masako solo exhibition "ZOO-M" from 6th to 28th November, 2009. This will be the exceptional young artist's second solo exhibition at FOIL GALLERY following to her debut exhibition in 2008 .

As if looking at sells through microscope, the works Masako Suzuki draws richly describe details with countless small circles and lines.

Although the motif she often uses are something pop and familiar, for instance adorable animals, conversely, the minute drawings exposing the inner parts often make us uncannily shudder at the mere sight. The, in a sense, extreme world Suzuki creates reminds us that the infiniteness of universe is an assembly of such small details, at the same time the every each small unit includes the eternal universe inside itself.

Suzuki's works are often characterised with its black-and-white miniatures drawn with drafting pen, however, since her solo show at FOIL GALLERY last year, she has gradually shifted her way of expression by colouring the black-and-white world. By the technical expanse, the universe of her works become immensely grown, filled with overflowing lively delights.

Facing such Masako Suzuki's work, you can not help but feeling the roars of energy of life as well as the fears by the overwhelming power of infinitive universe instinctively.

While the previous exhibition expressed the beauty of peace and tranquility, this second exhibition "ZOO-M" will present the energetic and free and rather playful side of the artist embodying the world of same-titled collection book "ZOO-M" in the gallery space.
