This will be the solo exhibition of TAKAHASHI, Mariko, an associate member of the Soga-kai art group, who won the “2019 Will+s Exhibition Award”.
The natural view which has never been changed from the past is painted with a dry painting touch. As her landscape painting has a solid atmosphere, we can see the artist’s bold will for the creation. The feeling of nostalgia comes together with that of emptiness. The blue sky embraces both the emptiness and the creativity.
About 20 pieces of new artworks will be on view. We hope you enjoy the exhibition.
