Mon 20-Sep-2021 at 6.30 pm - In Praise of Shadows - Painting Japan’s Landscape

A personal account of an artist’s journey across Japan in search of inspiration beyond the cliches of cherry blossoms and Mount Fuji already so familiar in the West. Visiting centres of local craft traditions and sourcing indigenous materials used by them to enrich her own mixed media landscape painting technique, in her talk Lydia will consider Western responses to the ‘ exotic’ and Japan’s own practice of landscape painting and aesthetics, and share her discovery of an unfamiliar, remote and beautiful land.
