Japanese Black & White Artist

Soho Nakano

May 25 – August 11, 2019

“Sakura (Cherry Blossoms)” is an installation of 40 tapestries, each measuring 700x1950mm (approx 27.5 x 77in), depicting the tree’s transformation through Japan’s four seasons. Using just a single seiboku ink, Soho Nakano masterfully presents an illusion of color in her paintings through a vivid array of shades. The washi paper, hand-crafted by traditional Japanese paper artisans in Fukui Prefecture, is utilized to its full potential with beautiful ink bleeds and nuanced tones. Nakano paints her works in one sitting, with no prior sketching. We hope you enjoy her unique creations, brought forth through intense focus and skill.
