“I, too, received a handmade stuffed doll from my mother when I was a child. This artwork reflects on the thoughts surrounding the meaning behind such a gift.”
– Naomi Okubo

This artwork, titled 𝙇𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙈𝙖𝙢𝙖, is a rendition of the artist’s own mother in doll form. Stitched together from pieces of fabric that the artist had gathered throughout the years, the work is based on Okubo’s memories of the rigid relationship and friction she experienced during her childhood to adolescence living with her mother.

Okubo also draws from the American tradition of the 19th century where mothers gave stuffed dolls to their daughters. The young girls unknowingly learned about their mothers‘ gendered roles while playing with these dolls.

𝙇𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙈𝙖𝙢𝙖 is currently on view in the exhibition 𝙄𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙎𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙚, 𝙀𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙏𝙝𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙨 at Fou Gallery. Follow the link in our bio or DM us to book your visit!

The most recent work embarked by the artist Naomi Okubo, 𝙇𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙈𝙖𝙢𝙖 - 𝘾𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙂𝙡𝙖𝙯𝙚𝙙 𝙎𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙚 is the representative piece of our current exhibition 𝙄𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙎𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙚, 𝙀𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙏𝙝𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙨.

Within a half-open structure resembling the interior of a house, multiple artist’s portraits are portrayed in varying gestures. Central to this piece are the two large dolls that overlook the artist and her “home.” Okubo looks into her own experiences regarding the home and family, especially her relationship with her mother.

As we return to the artist’s portraits, we can see one figure leaving the frame on the left. Viewers are left to project their questions and interpretations of this detail—could this be a statement for the artist’s departure from such comforting and restricting ties within the home?

𝙄𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙎𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙚, 𝙀𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙏𝙝𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙨, an exhibition of works by Naomi Okubo, is now on view at Fou Gallery!

Drawing from her experience of living in Tokyo and throughout the pandemic in New York, Okubo turns to life within a family structure and weaves a narrative that explores the concept of “home” in her paintings, glass sculptures, sewing work, and installations.

The multifaceted and ambiguous representation of home is precisely what Okubo aims to convey through her works—the paradoxical existence of socially constructed ties within the supposedly safe confines of home. Rather than employing direct expressions, Okubo embedded messages in various works in this exhibition, reflecting the reality of how various social and political issues can be buried within society.

The exhibition is open from Saturday to Wednesday by appointment only. Follow the link in our bio or DM us to book your visit!

Naomi Okubo’s work 𝙄𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙫𝙖𝙡 #3 is now on view at Fou Gallery!

🧊This work is part of the 𝙄𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙫𝙖𝙡 series made of casted glass, each one handmade by the artist and therefore unique. The sculpture shows a concave feminine figure in a long-sleeve dress, her knees slightly bent as she lies down facing upwards, covering the sunlight from her eyes.
Beautifully crafted, these Interval sculptures appear translucent under natural sunlight and create ethereal movements of light and shadow.

We are highlighting Naomi Okubo’s painting 𝘼𝙙𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙂𝙖𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙣, which will be presented in her solo exhibition opening tomorrow!

𝘼𝙙𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙂𝙖𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙣 unfolds an abstract “closely glazed space” complete with extraordinarily detailed renderings of various plants and Okubo’s double portraits. What is interesting is how these realistic yet fictional spaces seem to recall actual settings but in fact are undefined places. In this work, both of the beautifully clothed figures seem to look away from the audience and into the distance, perhaps towards the external world that awaits outside of the glass walls.

Four days countdown ⏰ Installation is in progress for Naomi Okubo’s exhibition 𝙄𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙎𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙚, 𝙀𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙏𝙝𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙨 at Fou Gallery!

Okubo presents her latest work that resounds with the gallery space itself, a historical brownstone townhouse complex that has housed many generations of Brooklyn residents. Playing with interior details and perspective, Okubo’s oeuvre initiates intimate conversations between place and people. Okubo’s work invites us to explore what a home can mean for us at a personal level and in the context of the tumultuous world.

Join us for the opening reception this Saturday, June 8, from 4 to 8 PM! Follow the link in our bio to learn more.

“With the sculpture, 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙇𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙨: 𝙍𝙚𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝘽𝙡𝙪𝙚 𝙑𝙞𝙤𝙡𝙚𝙩, the idea was the melding of two similarly shaped flat lines and similar flat colors. I wanted to make them feel they had come alive through the physicality of space, light and shadow. Each line begins as a gesture, and is stylized and refined to the point of capturing the essence of a unique wave and moment in time.” —Wendy Letven

Last Saturday, Fou Gallery hosted “Tea Alchemy: An Experimental Tea Ceremony,“ an event that beautifully merged the tradition of the Chinese tea ceremony with the innovative concept of communal dining. Under the expert guidance of tea artist Gong Mengyan , attendees participated in an interactive experience, utilizing teawares specially crafted by multidisciplinary artist Ruth Borgenicht .

We are excited to continue this journey into the art of tea with two more sessions this Saturday. Don‘t miss this opportunity to explore the rich tapestry of tea culture in an intimate, interactive setting!

“Recent creations mainly revolve around the experiences of pregnancy, childbirth, and becoming a mother. This experience has awakened my female consciousness, and I have a strong desire to display, through painting, the process of how the female body grows, splits, stitches, and heals, exploring some mysterious resonance between the structure inside the body and the outer universe.” - Shuling Guo

The Stairs I & II are a two-part study of the amorphous shape of the curving staircase in a vaulted room. When stripped of practical details, the stairs become an abstracted swirling movement. It gestures and sways, leading to opposite paths yet balancing itself out—an architectural dance in space.

The pigments are earthy, akin to rust. They have a natural kinship to the color of raw linen. They embrace the porous surface and edge on disappearance. To paint this thin, every brushstroke has to be a breath well-controlled. One cannot hide under paint, because each mark reveals itself and the one preceding it. I am invested in this method of painting because of its transparency, the time it takes for an image to arrive, and the tremendous amount of strength it takes to be light. .xu
