About the Exhibition

This is a solo exhibition of the work of Toshiko Tochihara, who expresses peace and love using striking colors. Born in 1946, Tochihara began her career as a painter of contemporary art in 1991. Her experience of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of 1995 opened up new dimensions in her art, and her works proliferated. With their powerful, vivid colors and bold lines, her works have drawn increasing attention both inside and outside JapanThis exhibition shows some 30 works by Tochihara, mainly her new works. At a time when the COVID-19 (coronavirus) has quickly spread worldwide, causing fear and uncertainty among all people everywhere, the exhibition reflects in its title the wake-up call the painter believes humanity must heed as well as her hope for the future. The exhibition shows the unique realm of an artist who deeply feels the plain and honest laws of nature in which things go naturally where they should go, in a ceaselessly changing world.
