Yoko Mitsuyuki

Mitsuyuki   - About by work -

Since the 90's I have held a number of shows in New York, and participated in group exhibitions there, and as I began announcing new pieces overseas, I began consciously emphasizing my hometown of Yanagawa more strongly. I have returned to my origins there, and today I do mostly oil paintings expressing the nature of Yanagawa in a modern mode. My childhood memories of the cityscape; the air, water, soil, wind and light of the land; the texture of the plants; and the multitude of colors and forms that all exist in my heart are expressed on the canvas as abstract images. The desires, emotions and lives of humanity remain unchanged at their core even in this modern age. Through nature, I strive to express the preciousness of life and our human emotions.
