KH Gallery Ginza will host, “Hiroko Koshino, The Sources of Creative Inspiration” from Monday, August 29.
This exhibition introduce a multispectral view of the creations, life, and “Sumi Ink” of Koshino, who draws on the beauty of Japan as the source of her creative inspiration.
KH Gallery Ashiya, reconstructed from Koshino’s former residence designed by Tadao Ando. Longing to obtain a “physical experience and understanding of the four seasons of Japan”, Koshino spent some 30 years of her life in the natural setting.
For Koshino, life in Ashiya serves as the source of not only her creative inspiration, but also the aesthetic senses of the Japanese people which she seeks to pursue through her works.
Signature works including Sumi ink based art works and calligraphies will be on display in this exhibition under the concept of Koshino’s interpretation of “Japanese sensibilities.” KH Gallery Ginza will also explore a new form of presentation through its first-ever exhibition of slides showing Koshino’s lively production process, as well as Tadao Ando’s sketches and architectural scale models of Koshino’s residence in Ashiya. We invite you to come experience Koshino’s beloved atmosphere of Ashiya, the source of creative inspiration seeping through every corner of the gallery as if to transport visitors to the artist’s actual production environment.
