Ikkan Art Gallery is pleased to present Space Flower, an exhibition of new works by internationally renowned Japanese media artist, Naoko Tosa. Tosa's new series of works pays homage to Rimpa, one of the major historical schools of Japanese painting that was founded in Kyoto in the 17th century. The fragmentation of flowers by the elements of wind and thunder in Tosa's works serves an allegory for the fading of old customs and the beckoning of a new future.

Naoko Tosa is an internationally renowned Japanese media artist, born in 1961 in Fukuoka, Japan. After receiving a PhD for Art and Technology Research from the University of Tokyo, she was a fellow at the Centre for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT from 2002 to 2004 and is currently a professor at Kyoto University. She has exhibited her artworks at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the New York Metropolitan Art Museum and Japan Creative Center at Singapore among many locations worldwide.
