Artist Comment
I began to use the theme of folklore and prayer in my work after visiting the Unedori Shrine in Tono, Iwate Prefecture. The sight of so many red cloths hanging down from the branches of the trees that they filled the sky above my head was very mysterious, and I remember thinking that they were all forms of prayers of the people who visited the shrine.
After this event, I began to use cloth as a motif to connect God and people in my work.
This work, "Eternal Prayer," was created with the hope of expressing in my own way the memories of the visit of Unedori-sama, the thoughts of the daughter in the legend of "Oshira-sama,"  the sight of Oshira-sama clad in many brightly colored cloths at the Oshira Hall in "Tono Lore Garden," the wishes and prayers of people I felt at that time, and the prayers of the people in the form I wanted to express in my own way.
The technique of water-based multicolor woodblock printing is used to create a work by layering many plates and colors, and I printed each plate as if I were layering the prayers and wishes of the people I felt on each plate.

Gallery Commentary
Iwate Prefecture, also known as the "Home of Folktales," is a land that retains many folk beliefs and legends. Kohara, who spent the childhood there, also heard many stories passed down from her grandparents.
Kohara’s artworks are a mixture of local folklore and beliefs, as well as memories of events she experienced. The artworks created from vague memories of what she saw, and they are like a thread of wishes for what might have been.
Having experienced the loss of a loved one, Kohara is searching for something warm between this world and the next.
