Yukino Iwatsuki “Green Life”
[Yukino Iwatsuki "House" (2019) 41 ×53 cm, Oil on canvas]
This event has ended.
Born in 1975, Yukino Iwatsuki graduated from Visual Communication Design Course at Kanazawa College of Art in 1998. In addition to her solo exhibitions in Japan, she won prizes in 13th Arte Laguna Prize and The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition in 2019.
The act of looking is one of the important factors in her creation. For this artist who is fascinated by daily life, the world in front of her, including light, colors, and scenery, becomes a subject to trust with a sense of realness. These philosophy and ideals are embodied in “Reality = Life.” She redefines everyday feelings that tend to be disliked and sublimates them into works as something beautiful and precious.
The combination of small houses and animals, tropical plants, and vegetation seen from the inside of Japanese-style rooms is drawn from her life and on overseas trips. On flat picture planes, an atmosphere created by the gathering of things,such as landscapes, buildings, and living creatures is depicted without self-assertion.
This exhibition exhibits mainly new oil paintings, as well as drawings that depict scenes in the artist’s mind whilst traveling in Thailand and other countries. In the midst of rapid social changes, 15 works were born with a sincere attitude based on a consistent theme. Yukino Iwatsuki’s solo exhibition “Green Life” will be open on the gallery website for those who cannot come to the venue.
from June 12, 2020 to July 04, 2020
