      EVENT DETAILS
      Exhibition: A Window on Nature: Art of Asuka Hishiki

      A Window on Nature: Art of Asuka Hishiki includes over 35 watercolors illustrating a poetic and detailed observation of plants and insects. Hishikis portraits of vegetables from New York Citys celebrated Greenmarkets and her imaginative plant-like insects from her Association of Type B metamorphosis Entomologists (ATBE) series are influenced by a childhood reference book of insects, plants and animals, as well as her fascination with the work of 18th century naturalist and scientific illustrator Maria Sibylla Merian. Offering a visually nourishing treat, Hishiki faithfully captures crisp, ripe colors of locally grown vegetables and brilliantly patterned caterpillars sprout mushrooms on their backs.
