Haruko Inagaki often visited the zoo near her birthplace in her childhood.
So when she started studying and specializing painting, they’re appeared animals and zoos in her works naturally.
In the landscapes Inagaki draws, there are often animals and children with unclouded eyes.
The world she creates is a forgotten memory of the human race.
Inagaki would like to make a soft and kind wake-up call to the forgotten memory of audiences.
Inagaki mainly uses natural pigments(soil, shells, glass and so on).
