A Window on Nature: Art of Asuka Hishiki

The Arsenal Gallery, The Arsenal in Central Park, 5th Avenue at 64th Street, New York, NY
April 26-June 6, 2012 
Artists’ Reception: April 25, 2012, 6-8 PM 

This solo exhibition features botanical and nature art in watercolor, graphite, and oil by ASBA member Asuka Hishiki. Her subjects are mainly vegetables and fruits. We all see them in daily life, but how often do we observe them? Asuka sees the beauty in these ordinary specimens, and her observations change them into art. The artworks demonstrate not only the beauty of the specimens but also Asuka’s technical and aesthetic proficiency.
