Mitsuko Hoshino Solo Show -touched-




Rustling of leaves, ripples on water, shifting light and shadow, or the breathing of life: those sounds and forms of nature let Hoshino create artworks which remind us of an intuitive feeling of being.

We hope you will enjoy this new solo show, which will be the first in Japan in six years by this German based artist.
