Hiroko Koshino, active in a wide range of fields, from fashion, to painting, to lifestyle. While active as a fashion designer on the front lines of the industry, her presence as an artist always vigorously immersed in creativity has fascinated a great many people. At KH Gallery Ginza, we will present the diverse styles presented by Hiroko Koshino’s world of art for each season.
Koshino’s style is to construct her artwork as she sketches them out. In this pieces, the vertical and horizontal, and the lower and upper stratum intersect, and accumulate in layers as they materialize, fortifying their visual multi-layered nature. To an artist who continues to create artwork at her studio in Rokko mountains, the changing of seasons in Japan are perpetually a source of inspiration, and have come to be a theme in her work.
For this exhibition, we will display approximately 10 paintings, including some new pieces, themed on the variety of contrasts in the natural world, such as the moon and sun, light and shadow, and warmth and cold. This masterpiece, shown at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 2010, makes its Japanese premiere. At this venue, you are sure to come into contact with the philosophy of Koshino’s perpetual pursuit of new forms of beauty.
