Whitestone Gallery Karuizawa is pleased to announce ARTIST miu's solo show: The Light. ARTIST miu's artwork is profound simultaneously clear. The panel, which is a cement-coated inorganic block, is just an empty substance: the resin coloured dot poured into the hollow of cement stands out more and attracts our attention. Regarding its charm, the artist mentions as “element of negativity” and “conversion of essence”. Her works are also characterized by a link to the contemporary society under a dark cloud:ARTIST miu’s twinkling coloured dots could hint at joy, hope, enjoyment, light, whereas cement parts could be shadow of the society.
