The Japanese artist Katsuko Ono playful etchings are reminiscent of a children’s theater, and are glimpses into her mythical stories and fairytale world. Her works possess a certain light-heartedness. In these, delicate colours are used. She started etching in 2009, creating illustrations for children’s books by combining etching and acrylics. The works present in our gallery are illustrations originally created for a children’s stories magazine. The context of these etchings explains their light-heartedness as well as the delicate colours used.
