“Representation of the Mind – A Mirror Reflecting the Heart” – Chiemi Ogura Solo Exhibition

HULS Gallery Tokyo will hold an exhibition titled “Representation of the Mind – A Mirror Reflecting the Heart” by Chiemi Ogura, a bamboo craft artist based in Kyoto. She creates bamboo crafts with sophisticated designs, paying close attention to detail and delicate handwork. She explains that her use of traditional weaving techniques reflects her state of mind at the time of creation. The patterns, woven with gentle luster and natural bamboo scents, beautifully depict scenes of Japan’s four seasons as seen by her. This exhibition will feature accessories such as popular rings and bangles, small plates, as well as one-of-a-kind baskets and flower baskets created specifically for this exhibition. We invite you to come and take this opportunity to see these works up close.
