Mitsuko Kuroki Japanese Painting Exhibition -Beyond the Illusory Aounabara-
Nov. 7 (Thu.) to Nov. 13 (Wed.)

Recently, many artists have taken to drawing the female figure as part of the bijinga (paintings of beautiful women) craze; however, the women depicted by Mitsuko Kuroki have a unique radiance.
Figures that emerge from a jet black world and an abstract layout are characteristic to her art which has a fantastic and bewitching view of the world. Her choice of colors is excellent, with the milky white skin of women contrasting against the black background and the contrasts of the vivid blues and reds of the mineral paints beautifully harmonizing artistry and decoration into a single piece.
"Aounabara (the blue sea) refers to the world governed by Tsukuyomi, the god of the moon, in the Nihon Shoki.
The blue and black tones that form the basis of my world view come from this blue sea. I came up with this title because I wanted to create an exhibition that depicts what is beyond that world." (Mitsuko Kuroki)
