POINT OF VIEW

Flowers and plants, insects, shimmering water, sunshine, and snowy landscapes. Yuki uses her body and all five senses to gather up the healthy world of nature and reflect it in transparent glass. Her works, in which graceful delicacy and solid vitality coexist, have an overwhelming power to attract people.
