On March 6, Polymorphs (Aragonite and Calcite), one of my paintings from the "Mineral Siblings" series, will be shown at the Blossom Blast 2017 exhibition. The show is at UltraSuperNew Gallery in the Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo.
About Blossom Blast
Globally, female artists exert an incredible influence in the art scenes of cities worldwide, Tokyo notwithstanding. However, the playing field remains far from level, and this poses a gender equality issue in the arts. The number of practicing female artists are still eclipsed by the number of men, and the average price paid for artwork created by women is lower than that of their male counterparts, reflecting a problematic trend around the world.
“Blossom Blast” is an exhibition that celebrates femininity and showcases the amazing talent pool of ambitious female artists in Japan. In tandem with International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrated globally on March 8, TokyoDex and UltraSuperNew have invited curator Miki Saito to gather a group of artists who explore the concept of this year’s show, “What It Means To Be A Woman” today.
