The Exhibition is from May 5, 2007 to May 27, 2007; there is an opening reception on May 5th from 3PM to 6PM. If you’re in Boston or anywhere *near* Boston I most highly suggest you make an effort to see this show! Her artwork is absolutely stunning, and I never can see enough of it- I regret that I am unable to make the trip out to Boston just to see this, but I’d do it in a heartbeat if I could.

Nishimura Yuko was awarded notable prizes for her innovative paper reliefs while still a student of architectural design at Nihon University in Tokyo. Using her skilled fingers as her tools, she transforms crisp, single white sheets of Japanese hand made paper into two dimensional panels and three dimensional objects that are filled with lyrical and rhythmic patterns comparable to music. Even the most subtle play of light across these intricate folded surfaces endows them with an unusual energy and excites the senses.
Beginning with a single folded line, the constantly changing length of each subsequent fold determines the final square, circular or oval patterns that sweep across the surfaces of her large scale reliefs. Nishimura says that these folded surfaces allow her to project the play of light and shadow into physical space and free her to express her feelings about space more fully.
