Toshiko Okanoue: “The Miracle of Silence”
Toshiko Okanoue burst onto the art scene in the 1950s, when she came to the attention of Shuzo Takiguchi, the leader of the Surrealism movement in Japan. Through the medium of photo collage, she fully developed her incomparable artistic talent. Influenced by the Collage Novel of Max Ernst, her increasingly expressive works reflect a distinctly feminine sensibility. This exhibition, centered around works of photo collage held in domestic and overseas, traces the story of Okanoue’s career.
