Turn on the Bright Lights

LAND opened at H2O Gallery in Kyoto yesterday. The two images below show the adjoining exhibition rooms, both modern and traditional, a beautiful play on one another.  Image #1 illustrates 36 hand-held sized works on the perimeter of the main gallery space, each decorated uniquely, with blue and black porcelain inlay, gold, and platinum. The central grouping represents the classical forms I have been working with for some time, hopefully demonstrating mature form and balance. The view image #2 represents is flat-out beautiful. A Japanese tatami tea room such as this will make anything look good.  It should be a fun two weeks in Kyoto. The show runs through March 31st. (I will be posting work from the show in more detail over the next couple of weeks.)
