Venue: Gallery Koukan, 106A Alexandra Park Road, London N10 2AE

The first major exhibition of new works by Mitsuko Hoshino in London since 2003 will open at the Gallery Koukan on Tuesday, 2nd June 2009. The show will include twenty-two new works in a site-specific installation.
Mitsuko Hoshino is a London-based artist whose work has been exhibited in the USA, Europe and Japan. She was born in Kanagawa, Japan, graduating from Tokyo's prestigious Tama Art University in 1988. After having worked in the United States and Austria she settled in London.
Hoshino attempts to capture the essence of nature in her largely abstract work, incorporating her eastern background and experiences with western cultures.Focusing on lines and strokes, her new body of work is chromatically reduced and rendered on one or more layers of semi-transparent material (silicone or drafting film).
Jurgen Kisters commented ‘movement and lightness are characteristic of Hoshino’s use of colour…to express the transience of being’ about her ‘dialogue’ exhibition with the German potter Gerd Knapper at the Japanese Cultural Institute in Cologne, Germany ('Kolner Stadt Anzeiger', 2005).Previously in London, Hoshino had a solo exhibition at Daiwa Anglo-Japan Foundation and in 2007 she was short listed for the Jerwood Drawing Prize. Other recent international solo shows include Gallery Gen, Tokyo (2006) and Gallery F.route, Kanagawa (2009). Her work is represented in private collections in Europe, USA, UK and Japan.
