Toeko Tatsuno (1950-2014), an award-winning Japanese artist who specialized in prints and oil paintings, received a lot of attention during the 1970s for her stripe motifs and distinct use of grids. Throughout the following decades, she continued to pursue her unique style, eventually becoming highly acclaimed for opening up new possibilities in abstract art.

This exhibition celebrates Tatsuno’s career and achievements by showcasing her wide range of art forms, including print works, pastel paintings and drawings. Her oil painting “Work 83-P-5” (1983) will also be on display.
