About the event

James Cyril Gardiner will be opening his third exhibition, 'Impressions of Tokyo' on 28 August at The Former Newington Library, London. The show will continue until 2 September with an invitation-only private view taking place on 27 August 6.30 – 8.30pm. 'Impressions of Tokyo' is a culmination of three years of work based around what has now become his iconic style.

His work reflects the relative permanence of the buildings and the temporary, ever-changing impermanent nature of people. He experiences a sense of urgency and spirit there that is particular to cities like Tokyo. In the city, there are so many people, but everyone seems to have something to get on with, even if that something is just existing or finding their own freedom despite the restrictions of space.

This is James’ second exhibition in London after a successful inaugural exhibition at Artworks, Elephant and Castle. Following this, he did a small exhibition for a week in Asakusa, Tokyo, in March this year. It was very well received, and he has been invited to exhibit in Tokyo again, this time at Gallery Siacca in Ginza next year.
James says, "I like the idea of the paper I worked on, and the marks I made, then existing in another's world..."
