The 80's, the 90's, Tina Chow and Us

We love Tina Chow's iconic style, Katsura Funakoshi's figuration and Sheila Metzner's palatte and development technique. Our original intent for this installation of H&G@H was design and art in the late eighties and nineties. "Too broad" (although we have other installations to follow) was our conclusion, so we'll simply write that whether the artists were Japanese or whether they were influenced by the Japanese, their interpretation is sculptural and straightforward with a quiet beauty that is refined, rather than reserved.
