SEIZAN Gallery is delighted to announce our inaugural participation in VOLTA New York, May 18 through May 22. The focus of our presentation is the work of artist Yasushi Ikejiri.


Influenced by a variety of landscape painters, from Ivan Shishikin to Edward Hopper, Yasushi Ikejiri (b.1971, Hokkaido, Japan)explores mundane scenes from everyday life in Tokyo. He depicts these images with extraordinary detail and saturated color. The paintings recall the pure, celebratory joy often found in landscape painting, yet a dystopian undercurrent is also present.

For VOLTA New York, Ikejiri presents new oil paintings from his recent “candy box” series. The classic children's story The Chocolate Candy Angel by Mimei Ogawa (1882-1961) in a key impetus for this series. Each painting depicts the corner of a desolate street or park and a mysteriously placed empty candy box. With evocative hints at human life in otherwise empty landscapes, Ikejiri speaks to the viewer’s imagination with implied narratives.
