Location: Imura Art Gallery Kyoto
Artist(s): Yu HANABUSA
Date: 5 Oct - 26 Oct 2013

Imura art gallery Kyoto is pleased to announce the solo exhibition, "SAKUTEI", featuring Yu Hanabusa.
For almost 10 years since 2000, Yu Hanabusa had created her work while coming and going between Thailand and Japan. Since 2010, she has been engaging in her creative activities in Kyoto. She creates colorful oil paintings with thick matière using the image of "flower offerings" or different legends of Thailand as her motif.

The theme for her coming exhibition is 'SAKUTEI'. She covers stone lanterns with flower and leaves to recreate a new image, and creates her "garden" by putting the lanterns back in the landscape.We see human knowledge, creativity, and conversation with nature in garden landscapes, and these elements constitute the view of nature held by the Japanese.

By covering stone lanterns and stone monuments that are inorganic and cold but mysterious and symbolic in nature with completely different materials, Hanabusa recreates a scene that is familiar yet surrounded by a unique atmosphere. At this exhibition, 7 oil paintings including the water color Hanabusa created during her trip to India for the "Art Across Asia" exhibition in 2012 will be exhibited.

"Using flowers and leaves, I recreate mysteriously structured stone lanterns, to place them in the landscape again. Stone lanterns turn towns, rivers, and mountains into a garden landscape."
- Yu Hanabusa
