Junko Mizuno "Ambrosial Affair" @ Narwhal Contemporary
At Narwhal Contemporary is an exhibition of new works by internationally celebrated Japanese artist Junko Mizuno entitled "Ambrosial Affair". The second in a three-part exhibition series titled ‘Junko Mizuno’s Food Obsession’, "Ambrosial Affair" invites viewers into a world of delightfully dark and erotic food fetishes that views eating as a metaphor for female sexual appetite and power. The twenty works on display highlight Mizuno’s mastery of both traditional Japanese and contemporary illustrative techniques. Using acrylic, ink and graphite Mizuno has created visually stunning and content-rich pieces that walk a fascinating line between the adorable, humorous, mysterious and grotesque. Enjoy a few photos of the exhibit via the gallery. If you're in Toronto, make a point to check out the artwork in person. Show runs through March 21st.
