Our Way to the Forest
Yuichi Hirako
Opening Reception Friday April 22 from 6 – 8pm
Exhibition on view through June 4, 2016

Hirako paints brilliant and fantastical scenes in deep and wild forests where plant‐like humans
intermingle with elements natural and man‐made.
The artist is interested in the different meanings given to nature depending on religious and cultural
backgrounds. In Japanese tradition, the forest is regarded as sacred, while in Western folklore, the
forest is often portrayed as wild and barbaric. As all societies move towards greater dominance over
nature, Hirako examines the desire for humans to coexist with the natural world.

Hirako has exhibited in numerous galleries and museums throughout Europe and Japan including
Christoffer Egelund Gallery (Denmark), Museum of Contemporary Art (Japan), Museum of Kyoto
(Japan). Awards include the 2013 “Vision of Contemporary Art”, the 2011 ″D Art Biennale″ and ″The
10th Gunma Biennale for Young Artists 2010″.
