Gallery Exhibition: Nobuko Hamano

Nobuko Hamano’s mixed-media works are an intriguing blend of color and material.


On display at the Frederick Harris Gallery between January 16 and February 5, the abstract pieces are reminiscent of the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte, known for his depiction of ordinary objects in unusual contexts.

For Hamano, a professor of visual media design at Kagawa Junior College, the lily serves as her muse.

Her images of flowers set in paradoxical surroundings, such as the cosmos or ocean, are ruminations on the possible existence of other life-forms in the universe.

“I attempt to express the universal beauty which everything in this world entails,” says Hamano, who has earned multiple awards in Japan and Europe.
