This event has ended.

Yukarina and Yumiko Utsu were the respective Grand Prize winners of the 26th "Hitotsubo" Exhibition in the Graphic Arts and Photography categories held last April. Since then the two have spent the past year preparing for these solo exhibitions.

The theme for Yukarina's paintings is "Brittle things that look tough, tough things that look brittle." Materials such as lace that are delicate and strong are drawn in colored pencil with fine detail, and colorful, mysterious animals and flowers and plants create a vivid imagined landscape. The artist's expression was judged by the "Hitotsubo" board to be one that symbolizes the present.

Opening Party: March 12th, 18:30-20:00
