“Tsushima/Tokyo”

《Untitled》
1950 Oil paint on canvas

Teruko Yokoi was born in Nagoya in 1924 and soon moved to Tsushima with her family. At the suggestion of her mother, she began painting at the age of six, and after moving to Tokyo in 1949, she studied under Takanori Kinoshita, who was introduced to her by Ikuma Arishima. While concentrating on impressionist-style landscapes and portraits, she decided to move to the U.S. in 1953 in search of further expression. This exhibition traces the roots of her art through works painted between the ages of 14 and 28, as well as works that show the influence of calligraphy and literature she was exposed to as a child.
