Perfect Parallel

Exhibition Show Coverage. Arielle Chambers

Longhouse Projects has presented its audience with yet another spectacle. Mitsuko Miwa's artwork graced the gallery walls, showcasing his second expedition at the location, "Imaginary Number."

Paintings for "Imaginary Number" were done in twos, in which she refers to as "twins." Miwa's inspiration from principles of Diane Arbus' "Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey" (1967). The creations, painted by hand on either canvas or panel, avoid mechanical or digital processing. Her paintings are meant to explore parallelism and ideas of inflexible individuality of each.  

Miwa's use of realistic landscaping was beautifully executed. The mountains painted were amazing. The button duo was also a personal favorite of mine.
