    Curator's Note:

    This is one of my favorite works by Hodaka Yoshida. A tremendous composition capturing the magic of  the forest under the night moon. The colors are rich and the abstract layers to the image leave room for the imagination to make its own conclusions. Most would consider the woods to be a scary place at night, whereas this work makes them inviting and full of energy.
