Message from Artist

I am so hoppy to have an opportunity to exhibit my paintings together with Noh-masks carved by Kozen Hanyu, my father. A Noh-mask to be put on by Site (a hero of Noh Theater ) who lives in the spiritual world is supposed to present the world of soul which has been expressed by Japanese through Noh Theater. I feel Noh-masks have some deep connection with my paintings in which I try to express invisible world of heart or soul. I hope guests will sense, through our exhibition, the beauty of Japanese culture or a kind of profound spirituality. EmikoHorimoto
