Manna Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings by Fumiyo Yoshikawa and ceramics by Joe Mielke. ”Pacific Rim” opens May 17 and continues to June 22.  A reception for the artists happens on First Friday, June 7, from 6 to 8 pm.  Both artists will give a brief talk about their work at 7 pm.
Fumiyo’s intense yet delicate abstract paintings are influenced by her formal training in sumi-e, where disciplined brushwork is used to merge calligraphy with related imagery. Her small to medium sized artworks combine her Japanese cultural background with a modern sensibility.
She says, “I resonate with the Eastern thought of ‘All creatures in heaven and on earth come from the same root as myself’ and ‘All things and I are of one substance.’ I imagine that the memory and consciousness of living things from a distant past are in a cycle, similar to an ecosystem. It is curious to imagine that my deepest consciousness is connected to the memory shared by this natural world.”
Fumiyo has exhibited extensively both here and abroad, most recently in Kyoto, Japan and Bradenton, Florida.
