New Denver artist Koko’s latest show at Studio Connexion in Nakusp is a series of paintings based on Amaryllis blossom models.

Studio filled with Vitalitas

Tsuneko “Koko” Kokubo’s show “Vitalitas” opened at Studio Connexion and was swarmed with admirers.

Tsuneko “Koko” Kokubo’s show “Vitalitas” opened at Studio Connexion and was swarmed with admirers drawn to her lithe drawings and paintings. This show centres on Amaryllis flowers which bloomed in her studio in January’s winter.

Each painting was a graceful balance of crimson and green or cream and emerald, and every painting looked like a dance captured in time on canvas. In the corner, a series of sketches outlined the flowers in various stages of blossom.

Inside and out, viewers chatted and thronged the small gallery, basking in the flowers’ delight, a chance available to everyone until June 2 when the show closes.
