February 1 @ 10:00 am - April 15 @ 5:00 pmFree
Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum and Berry’s Center for Integrity and Leadership (BCIL) are excited to host art by leading contemporary artist Makoto Fujimura. The exhibit features works from Fujimura’s “Waterflames” and “Walking on Water” painting series done as elegies after traumatic disasters, among other paintings to capture a comprehensive nature of his art.
These works integrate the language of Japanese art of 16th to 17th Century with the Modernist works of Mark Rothko and Arshile Gorky, together into a contemporary expression. Nihonga (Japanese style painting using pulverized minerals and gold and silver) materials are transmuted into contemporary expression of Fujimura’s as “slow art”.
