Shizuko Yoshikawa is one of the artists that knows how to build a bridge between architecture and Modern Art. Swiss citizen but Jpanese born Yoshikawa was largely influenced by the ideas of design department of the Hochschule fur Gestaltung in Ulm.
One of the people who recognized that was the owner of gallery Artline in the Netherlands who held an exhibition in 1986 on Yoshikawa, presenting her color reliefs for the first time in the Netherlands. I wish i had seen her work at that time, Because my knowledge on art has grown over the years. If i now had a chance in aquiring a Yoshikawa work i really would consider to add it to my collection. It is the kind of art that grows on you and is appreciated more and ore over the years. Rooted in the sixties it has a little from everything a bit minimal art, a dash of Zero and perhaps a drop of Kinetic art makes a Yoshikawa work one of a kind.
