Mouri is an artist, who paints vegetables and fruits.
She uses Japanese natural mineral pigments as well as acrylic paints for her vivid artworks and sometimes also foils, which is one of Japanese traditional art techniques.
The artist living in the countryside also has a green thumb: Her affection to the natural beauty of the harvest are reflected in the freshness and liveliness of her artworks.
Vegetables and fruits represent not only seasons but some of them typically good luck and prosperousness.
She translates them colorfully but with dignity into modern forms, which attracts collectors in and outside Japan.

毛利は野菜や果物を描いている画家です。
作品は岩絵の具とアクリルを使って色鮮やかに表現され、時には日本の伝統技法である「箔」が使われています。
地方に住む作家は園芸の才能ももっています。
収穫物の自然美への愛情が、作品の瑞々しさと生き生きした体となって表れています。
野菜や果物は季節を象徴するだけでなく、それらのいくつかは吉祥の意味もあります。
彼女はこれらをカラフルにしかしながら品格をもって現代的な形に解釈しており、国内外のコレクターを魅了しています。
