Some of you will have enjoyed seeing a small selection Yori’s paintings in our first exhibition. Now we get a chance to showcase her work! Yori trained as a printmaker at the National Art School, and brings that sensibility along with her immersion in the traditions of Japanese Shintoism and Zen Buddhism to her painting practice.
These abstract landscapes are Yori’s response to the traditions of her upbringing in Japan and her wonder at experiencing the Australian bush when she immigrated here in the early 2000s. With their thickly applied paint contrasting with delicate and calligraphic pencil markings and washes of colour, these paintings are evocative and sensual.
Join Yori for drinks in the Gallery on Sunday June 5, from 4 to 6 pm.
