Tomoko Ninomiya is from Tokyo.
Working with wax,rice paper,tiny light boxes,
she has created a series of illuminated paintings
that hover in the darkness like ancient cave paintings
suddenly stumbled upon by candle light.
These delicate works are quiet and reflective.
Referring to a childhood love of things translucent,
the artist works toward that delicate balance
between the visible and the invisible.
Cortland Jessup (Exhibition Curator), December 15,1997
