Young Japanese artist Misato BAN explores both the distance and proximitybetween nature and people in her work
and delicately forces the viewer to reflect on being part of nature. She creates a daydream-like atmoshereportraying
everyday moments and exploring her poetic thoughts, aiming to create a feeling of balance between nature and contemporary life.
BAN invokes an inter-connectedness with the natural world, and suggests that people are just one part of nature
and just one part of life on earth.
