Imura art gallery is pleased to announce "Formation from disappearance," a solo exhibition by Yoshimi Miyamoto that presents achievements from an international residency made possible by winning the Gotoh Cultural Award for best new talent.

Yoshimi Miyamoto explores light and shade in painting, depicting on fine cotton canvas a monotone world using 'a black that is not black' that she creates by mixing watercolors of various different colors. By using 'white' to achieve meticulous, stoic highlighting, as if manipulating light itself, she produces amazingly polished black-and-white paintings.

Miyamoto was able to join an artist-in-residence program in the Netherlands as a result of receiving the Gotoh Cultural Award. She explores the theme of light and shade in the context of painting, employing photography and other optical techniques in an attempt to discover a present-day substitute for the Dutch light seen in seventeenth century Dutch paintings.

Five new works include a major work in which the artist achieves sculpture-like effects of light and shade by applying white paint directly onto the actual vegetation to be depicted. They also include a painting based on a sculpture that left a deep impression on the artist during her time in the Netherlands.

On the first day of the exhibition, the artist will be signing copies of Miyamoto Yoshimi Sakuhinshu ("Yoshimi Miyamoto"), a collection of her works that is published in conjunction with the opening.
