To frame these two paintings by Makoto Fujimura, we chose Larson Juhl’s Chambord float frames; their raw, upscale use of basic elements make a perfect complement to Fujimura’s work. Made in France, these solid oak frames are hand-finished in the European tradition of fine water-gilding.
Makoto Fujimura is an artist, writer, and speaker whose work has been shown at galleries around the world, including Dillon Gallery in New York, Sato Museum in Tokyo, The Contemporary Museum of Tokyo, Gallery Exit and Oxford House at Taikoo Place in Hong Kong, and Vienna’s Belvedere Museum. He is also one of the first artists to have painted live on stage at New York City’s legendary Carnegie Hall. A Presidential appointee to the National Council on the Arts from 2003-2009, Fujimura served as an international advocate for the arts, speaking with decision makers and advising governmental policies on the arts.
