Pansies in a Vase Marvellous colored mezzotint, meticulously fine handling and artistic interpretation See Print Details
Pear Wako ITO has a special love for fruit and flowers. Here a single pear, with leaves still attached, appears to have been just picked, on ground that may be earth or field. The Print has a spontaneous quality with very good use of light and shade; the ripe fruit, lusciously rounded, is set off by the tangle of stems and leaves that surround it as if with a light and caring touch. Wako Ito works in the mezzotint medium which she has developed masterfully. See Print Details
Roses in a Glass The latest in a series of beautiful mezzotints is this image of Roses in a Glass Vase shown against a backdrop of delicate leaf reflections and standing on a muted yellow/green leafy base.
The composition is a marvellous creation of the softest gradation of harmonious color, bursting forth in the full bloom of the lovely rose.
