Tomoko Sugimoto Visits New York
Who are these curious little children floating in water colors, acrylics and cotton thread embroidery? Meet the creations of artist Tomoko Sugimoto, a Tokyo native who is presenting her first solo show in Manhattan next week, entitled Turn Around And Around, Then Around.
After traveling the world with the legendary Takashi Murakami studio as his Painting Director, Tomoko has developed a hybrid of influences through her own prisms. The narrative of her work is a touch of the “Eastern” storyline becoming the “Western” surface treatment… culminating into a truly emotive expression. Props to Curator Osiel Rojas for bringing the emerging artist to the forefront.
View her work opening night, this Wednesday, November 6th at No Romance Galleries on 373 Broadway, Suite 204, Tribeca. Times: 7-10 pm.
