Happy New Year! Here's to more photography and art in 2020!
On the heels of The Big Holiday Smalls Show, my next art show is opening at Toronto's Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. It's Artsu Matsuri (Art Festival) 2020 - running from January 11 to March 29, 2020. This show features art work by Japanese and Canadian artists, sharing the Japanese Canadian culture with art-lovers in Toronto.
For this festival I'm exhibiting three pieces from my new series combining Japanese calligraphy with images captured in Japan's flower parks - two from the Hitachi Seaside Park when it's full of flowers blue as the sky, and a third from the Ashikaga Flower Park filled with dreamy wisteria.
Flowers of the Sky (Sora no Hana)Nemophila flowers (also known as Baby Blue Eyes) cover the gently sloping hill, forming a uniform scene with the blue sky. Part of my art series combining calligraphy with images captured in Japan.
Colour of Wind (Kaze no Iro)Orange poppies can be found here and there amongst the sea of blue nemophila flowers. Standing taller than the baby blue eyes, dots of orange sway in the wind. Part of my art series combining calligraphy with images captured in Japan.
Pearls of Flower (Hana no Tama)The curtain of wisteria flowers were an amazing sight to behold. Focusing on one string showcases the pearls of flower that make up the entire scene. While the 150-year old wisteria (fuji) tree is most impressive, it’s the individual contribution of pearls of flowers that add up to the overall beauty. Similarly, the collaboration of of our individual efforts is essential towards enhancing the global community. Part of my art series combining calligraphy with images captured in Japan.
Please visit the exhibit to see these in person, along with the work of numerous other artists.
The gallery is located inside the JCCC located at 6 Garamond Court, Toronto.
The opening reception is January 9, 2020 at 7-9pm. Hope to see you there!
