For the year of 2017, KH Gallery Ashiya will present visitors with various comparisons in the context of Koshino’s creative works, under the theme of “Contrast.”. An artist always seeking for different ways of expression instead of remaining still at one place, Koshino has reflected her seemingly conflicting views and values to numerous masterpieces.
One time, she may depict a tranquil world of elegance and simplicity with sumi-ink. Another time, she may use vivid colors to evoke emotions. It is as though the biorhythms of life are embodied by the myriads of artworks that oscillate between Stillness and Motion.
The exhibition will also seek to illustrate the contrast between Fashion and Art for the first time in KH Gallery Ashiya. Through their encounter with art, news lives will be breathed into garments that have been incorporated into the installation.
The beauty of artworks enclosed in a planar dimension and the beauty of lightweight and elegant garments, both embraced within the beauty of the solemn architecture designed by Tadao Ando. This year, we invite you to enhance the dynamic transition from the landscape of spring to summer with the beautiful contrasts brought about by the clash and synthesis of these outstandingly unique elements of beauty.
