Chihiro Iwasaki, Boy and a Goat, 1969
Chihiro: Color without Color
Chihiro once said, “If I think it’s red, I paint it red. If I think it’s purple, I use purple. I’ll sometimes make the sky yellow and color water pink.” She would paint and draw freely, using colors that she sensed in her heart were appropriate as opposed to those she saw. In this exhibition we introduce the appeal of Chihiro’s artistic expression with a focus on her use of color, such as purple, which was one of her favorites, and black, which was a source of infinite colors.
