YOSHIKO KANAI

East Meets West: An Exhibition of Fine Art from Asia
April 1 – April 21, 2016
Reception: Thursday, April 7, 2016 6-8 PM

The mixed media art of Japanese artist Yoshiko Kanai is both a poignant tribute to traditional Japanese art and a beautiful expression of the many ways in which our global cultures intersect to create new and lovely themes and contextual meanings. Kanai’s art is unique, in that she uses acrylic paints on small wood pieces and then wraps them with threads to form a variety of visual effects. Each pattern contains its own visual connotation, inspired by nature and the modern world in both physical and metaphysical ways.

Although she studied and worked in the United States for decades, today Yoshiko Kanai lives and works in Yugawara, Japan. Her art, in a way, reflects this journey... inspired at once by an early 20th century NYC thread factory and Japanese artistic traditions. As the artist explains quite eloquently, "My work is a reflection of my life. It contains everything about myself in the present and the past strung through by a long piece of thread. Now, these beautiful threads will lead me to new creative possibilities."
