KH Gallery Ginza Hiroko Koshino Paintings Visible in Clothing


“Paintings Visible in Clothing” is being hosted at the KH Gallery Ginza. Hiroko Koshino has had an amazing 60-year career as a fashion designer and she still currently announces 2 collections a year which continue to share beauty ahead of its generation. She has also tirelessly been releasing works of art in recent years creating a unique world combing fashion and art. This exhibition displays clothing works from past collections in three categories of “quality, shape and color” which have been re-defined from the design elements of paintings. Her fashion is captured in a new manner from an artistic perspective. The series with clothing works enclosed in flat and clear acrylic cases allows guests to view in detail this “quality” including different materials for each work of art, handmade decorations and the picturesque structure. Meanwhile, the optical installation features infinite “shapes” which can be imagined from one dress. You can also take in “colors” in KH gallery’s first exhibition of colorful giclée style paintings which sparkle in their own small worlds.
Discovering “works of art” from past clothing could be another step forward in the fusion between fashion and art. Enjoy this unprecedented experience which transcends human form and expands your world of senses.

Hiroko Koshino The Nature


“Hiroko Koshino The Nature” is being hosted at KH Gallery.
You can see colors and shapes that resemble vestiges and minerals that have been excavated, in paintings by Koshino. This exhibit is a collection of profound and dignified paintings that are contrastive with works that have flamboyant hues, by expressing nature and the passage of time. These paintings, with their elegant hues of gold, silver, and black, are not merely decorative, as they have appearances resembling natural objects that have existed since the distant past, such as minerals and celestial bodies. Also, the shapes and shadows of her relief works resemble land forms that were created by the passage of time. Her obsession with texture has created art in which you can see her attention to detail.
While painting, she comes closer to expressions of nature. Also, she reconstructs ancient materials and leads us to new ones. In our current generation in which artificial items are mass produced, these pieces are valuable expressions of art. By all means, come and imagine the eternal flow of time within nature.
