Yuriko Miyoshi Exhibits in Galerie Zône
Nieuwstraat 17b, 2312 KA Leiden
1 to 31 March 2013
Opening on Sunday 3 March
14.00 – 16.00
Yuriko Miyoshi is a graphic artist (etcher) pur sang. She has a Japanese diploma degree in the visual arts (MA). She participated in various International Print Projects, such as in Japan, Belgium, Portugal, the Baltic countries and the Netherlands. Yuriko's prints are in private collections and also in public collections such as the British Museum in London. Since 2003 she lives in the Netherlands. She makes very fine work in which several themes come forward: travel, musical instruments, maps, memories. She forges details from various images together into a new image. Since 2002 in this way a new reality of Japan and the Netherlands arises in her Land Series, the Dutch landscape viewed through Japanese eyes and translated into wonderful color etchings.
In collaboration with Ad Stijnman she made three prints inspired by the Great Earthquake in eastern Japan on 11 March, 2011. The Sakura (cherry blossom) and the colours in these prints are soothing with hope that all will be well again.
You are very welcome
