The Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum is currently hosting the largest exhibition ever of the surreal photo collages of Toshiko Okanoue. Now 91, Okanoue burst onto the art scene in the 1950s when her work came to the attention of Shuzo Takiguchi, a leading figure in Japan’s Surrealism movement. Using images cut from imported magazines including Vogue and LIFE, she explored themes of war, femininity and relations between the sexes.
