Description

Michiko Hoshino’s "Mirror of Borges A". was part of her ongoing homage to writer Jorge Luis Borges. The ABE raisonné notes about her work from the time were "filled with tension that resembles a struggle btween 'mad' chaotic disorder and orderly structure...".

Hoshino’s use of lithography in itself lends more weight to the experience of the piece, as the viewer contemplates the time-consuming, physical effort of rendering the image onto the zinc matrix and printing it onto the sheet.

Hoshino focused almost primarily on lithography from the late 1960s until the early 2000s, traveling to Argentina, New York, and to Canada to further her studies in the technique. As well, her main theme was the writings of Borges as well as his person, creating several portraits and figurative works of the writer in the same Surrealist style as her non-figurative prints.
