Senrin Yamagishi: Dancing Cherry Blossoms 

March 27 - April 7, 2018

Opening: Thursday, March 29, 6-8pm 

 

Born in 1962 in Tokyo, Senrin Yamagishi graduated from Tama Art University of Fine Arts majoring in Japanese painting, and has exhibited her work in Japan, New York and Paris. Fascinated by the refined beauty and elegant use of space by byobu screen and fusuma-e (sliding door painting), Yamagishi has devoted her life to Rimpa (a movement of painting and aesthetic design that emerged in Japan during the Edo period) paintings and in doing so, kept its tradition alive and continues to create something new using this decades old technique. Yamagishi has been working with Kyoto's renowned Kodaiji temple since 1997. Her fusuma-e painting, 'Spring View - Weeping Cherry Tree', which was modeled after a 100-year old weeping cherry tree at the temple, became her master work and also the temple's signature image. These sliding door paintings have been on view to the public every spring when the cherry blossom festival is held at the temple for the past 20 years.
