Eri Zenitani "New Abstract Spiritualism"
This event has ended.
Thanks to parents who were both artists, Zenitani started cultivating a close relationship with nature and art from an early age. Awa-odori, a traditional dance from her hometown in Tokushima prefecture, has been Zenitani's spiritual base as well as one of the crucial inspirations for her artistic creations. The rhythm and dynamism of Awa-odori generates a unique sense of exaltation, and its energy lingers subliminally in her paintings. How to stand face to face against the extraordinary presence of Awa-odori, and how to channel its energy and harness it to her own artistic expression...these difficult questions led her to explore new means of rendering form, bringing her eventually to the realm of abstract expression. In this regard, Zenitani has a more solid and unique motivation for her art production than other artists. Zenitani strives to render uplifting, dynamic worlds by subconsciously adjusting and modulating the color and volume of her paints, while at the same time being influenced by the common, everyday phenomena that surround her.
