Tsuneko Kokubo, "A Day’s Catch"
Tsuneko Kokubo, "A Day’s Catch," acrylic on wood board, 40" x 60 "
Regeneration is an exhibit by Tsuneko Kokubo & Toru Fujibayashi, two senior artists with extensive, fascinating and variant backgrounds, who have been part of the Kootenay arts and culture fabric for many years.
Regeneration evokes a minimalist design and aesthetic - like a Japanese-style garden of contemplation - with its tightly bounded compositions of gravel and rocks and sparse vegetation. Regeneration, at its heart, is a way of seeing; a study of memory and the motivations and methods with which we are able to understand lives lived. As the title tells us, these works are about life and death, but they also give us a glimpse of the doing in between.
Opening performance (Friday, August 26th): a short performance piece of movement, poetry and music will take place at 7pm sharp with Tsuneko Kokubo, Paul Gibbons, Toru Fujibayashi, Thomas Loh, and Takeo Yamashiro.
Please arrive by 6:45pm so as not to miss this memorable part of the opening event.
