Nancy Yoshii: Artwork and Images of Southern Japan

Last fall Nancy Yoshii was fortunate to spend 5 weeks in southern Japan, not far from where she had grown up as a military brat. For 4 of those weeks she participated, along with 5 other international artists, in a wonderful residency program at Studio Kura, located in rural Itoshima, a gorgeous region of fields, mountains and sea. While there, she created a series of mixed media collages based on childhood memories, Japanese food packaging materials, and other inspiration and detritus gathered during her stay. Her month at Studio Kura culminated in an exhibition of her work entitled “Coming Home.”
She looks forward to sharing with LICG members about her experience – her homecoming story, artwork, Japanese family and culture, and images of beautiful southern Japan.
