DESCRIPTION

PYO GALLERY, LA, is pleased to present Yoshio Ikezaki’s exhibition of washi sculptures; The Poetry Of Paper; The Earth Breathes - Mind Landscape.  In this solo exhibition, Ikezaki draws inspiration from landscapes and traditional sumi ink paintings to create meditative sculptures. Handmade Japanese mulberry paper, sumi ink, Japanese watercolors, and Nikawa glue are infused with chi energy to activate the crevices with a luminance often seen in sumi paintings. Every mark is fully charged with meaning and stripped of unnecessary details.

The end results are lyrical surfaces that celebrate the essence of nature, spirit, and mind.

 

The exhibition will run March 19 – April 23, 2011. A reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday, March 19 from 6 – 9 pm.  In addition, the gallery will host a lecture and demonstration by the artist on April 2 at 11 am.
