This event has ended.
The title of this exhibition, “Polar Green,” is a neologism inspired by painter Yuka Kashihara’s four-day trek across New Zealand’s famous “Milford Track,” a beautiful route traversing desert lands, rainforests, an alpine pass, and volcanic valleys. Witnessing the fleeting scenery that changes with each and every step, she felt deeply moved by the surprisingly vivid, almost mint-green hues of a lake she encountered.
Kashihara’s new works demonstrate glimpses of dynamic brushstrokes that evoke the energies of a primeval forest against delicate depictions of various plant life. This exhibition features the artist’s new jungle series that draw inspiration from the primeval forests she observed while camping over the past two years in Malaysia, Amami Oshima, and New Zealand. Such landscapes bring together her own memories and imagination, things she recently observed, and scenes that reside within herself, ultimately coming to manifest through a repeated process of painting and erasing.
