Ayako Rokkaku (with work by Sam Francis in the background) in Galerie Delaive’s booth at Art Cologne 2012.
There are two gorgeous works on canvas by Ayako Rokkaku in Est-Ouest’s Autumn Sale on November 27. I’ve loved her work for a few years now and I was so excited when I stumbled across her painting at SCOPE Miami in 2008. It’s really interesting to watch her work.
Lot 6: Ayako Rokkaku, Sisters, 2007, acrylic on canvas, 25.7 x 20.9 in. / 65.2 x 53cm. est. 30,000 - 40,000 HKD (3,868 - 5,158 USD)
Lot 5: Ayako Rokkaku, Winter in Town, 2007, acrylic on canvas, 25.7 x 20.9 in. / 65.2 x 53cm. est. 30,000 - 40,000 HKD (3,868 - 5,158 USD)
For those interested, Asian Art Auction Alliance has another, much larger work from Ayako in their November 26 sale (Lot 353). Also from 2007, it depicts a pair of girls not unlike those in Sisters.
