Hikari Gets Ready for Asahi Art Museum Show!

Hikari is celebrating her 10th anniversary as an artist with an exciting, major mid-career survey at the Asahi Art Museum in Japan. Opening on July 7th, her exhibit "The Catastrophe of Death and Regeneration" will showcase works spanning 2008-2018, including her largest painting to date. Check out this video of Hikari in her studio as she get ready for the show:

"This exhibition will be the 10th anniversary of my work. It will be displaying 40 new and old works as well as looking back at what I have done over the years. Also, the venue will be in Asahi village which is also my birthplace. Asahi's landscapes are unconsciously reflected in my work- I am very pleased that I can do a solo exhibition in this environment. I hope that this exhibition will be enjoyed by the local residents and everyone else as well."

The opening reception will be hosted Saturday, July 7th, 2018 from 3-5pm in the front courtyard of the museum and the exhibition is on view through August 26th, 2018. Japanese info about the exhibition is online here.
