“I constantly believe that
Nature is beautiful,
Life is beautiful,
Love is beautiful.”
– Artist Statement
Sumi-e is the ancient form of Japanese ink brush painting. It is rooted in the philosophy of not only capturing the image of the subject, but also its spirit and liveliness. Balance, rhythm and harmony in sumi-e brush strokes evoke the life and poetry of nature.
Following her last exhibition at the JICC in 2008, Nature is Beautiful, local artist Yoshiko Oishi Weick returns to share her passion for nature and life through her sumi-e artworks. Even in the city, she finds the life and beauty of nature in parks and streams. From the bare tree of winter or the green bud of spring to the fruit of summer and the majestic colors of fall, Ms. Oishi Weick strives to bring the living, breathing nature around her to life through her brush.
This exhibition is free and open to the public. The exhibition will run from February 8 until March 18 and will be open to the public during regular JICC hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
