佐伯和子 Exhibit at Gallery-403 (ギャラリー 403)

At this exhibit (2010/3/25-4/2) by 佐伯和子 (I didn't confirm how to pronounce the artist's name, but it might be Saeki Kazuko), held at Gallery-403 (ギャラリー 403), I spoke with the gallery owner about the pictures (but didn't meet the artist).  I was told that different types of paper were used, including Chinese bamboo-based paper, which is apparently very thin - thus the breaks where the backing paper shows through the thin paper the picture was drawn directly onto.

Oftentimes at exhibits, my favorite picture isn't the one chosen to represent the exhibition on the promitional postcard, but in this case it was - of the pictures displayed, I liked the one above best.

I'm not sure that the "佐伯和子" of the exhibit I saw is the exact same person as a "佐伯和子" I found on the Internet just now, but it may well be, so I'll put the link here:

I'll try to verify that and edit this post accordingly.
