Asuka Anastacia Ogawa - 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale, Afternoon Session New York Tuesday, May 16, 2023 | Phillips
  • Asuka Anastacia Ogawa is known for depictions of androgynous children in dreamlike fields of color in works that reference her Japanese and Afro-Brazilian ancestral lineage. In Holiday, 2018, Ogawa’s figure peers through flowing braids against a reduced landscape illuminated by a burnt orange sun. Holding three stylized yellow peonies, the figure contains a dreamlike innocence as well as cryptic ambiguity. 


    Ogawa was born in Tokyo in 1988 and raised in rural Brazil. Ogawa completed secondary school in Sweden before earning a BFA at Central Saint Martins in London. Now living and working in New York and London, Ogawa reflects these disparate cultural influences in her work. She has exhibited work with Blum & Poe, Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo; Half Gallery, New York; and Almine Rech, London. An artist to watch, Ogawa has work included in the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham and X Museum, Beijing.
