水谷和乎 Exhibit at Gallery-403 (ギャラリー 403) - (2010/04)

There were some very nice pictures at this exhibit (2010/04/12-17) by 水谷和乎 (I forgot to ask how to pronounce the artist's name) at Gallery403 (ギャラリー 403).  She explained that the paper she used is from Tibet, and that it's similar to "washi" (traditional Japanese paper), except it's a little rougher and thicker.

One of the pictures reminded me of a classical Japanese print in a style that I haven't personally seen outside of historical buildings in Kyoto or in museums.  (And I mean that in an entirely positive way - I have a lot of respect for those old traditional pictures.)
