This exhibition (2011/11/14-19) by Kamiwakida Naoko (上脇田直子) at Gallery b.Tokyo (ギャラリービートウキョウ) consisted of a set of very interesting paintings painted with various materials (tempera, nihonga, etc.) and conveying complicated feelings amazingly well. The picture (below) that was featured on the promotional card I immediately recognized as a crowded train platform in both details and feeling. I guessed Shinjuku and the artist said that was indeed the station she had in mind when painting it. Each picture conveyed an interesting set of feelings.
