Junko O’Neill : Fragments of Time : A solo exhibition of art, inspired by the Japanese space/ time concept of ‘Ma’

19 - 24 March 2013, London

Please join us for a series of events complementing the exhibition, including the Private View, a Panel Discussion on ‘Ma’ with a music performance, origami folding for families, calligraphy workshop and artist talks.  Details to be annoucned here :



The Japanese artist, Junko O’Neill, presents a thought-provoking and comprehensive body of work with her first solo exhibition in London. Figurative and abstract paintings as well as 3D pieces are all inspired by the space/time concept of ‘Ma’, which is unique to Japanese culture. The concept considers space as fundamentally void: only space itself is deemed to be eternal and everything that fills the space is of a transient nature. O’Neill also sources ideas for her works from Japanese literature such as Haruki Murakami’s novels. She finds these novels and her work share the same sense of time passing within the space.


The exhibition is complemented by a series of diverse public programme events to take place at the gallery
