Mirang Wonne + Fumiyo Yoshikawa

May 9–June 10, 2018
Opening Reception: Wednesday, May 9, 5–7 p.m.

For the last three decades, Mirang Wonne has embodied natural forms in unexpected mediums. She uses primarily industrial materials that paradoxically amplify the organic intensity of those forms, capitalizing on their physical and optical peculiarities. Fumiyo Yoshikawa’s uses Japanese brush painting methods called nihonga and sumi-e. The traditional brush used in nihonga and sumi-e is organic and simple, and is the perfect tool for her boundless expression.
