The wisdom of animals & nature

9th May – 20th May

 

Opening Night: Thursday 12th May, 5:30 – 7:30 pm 

 

Shinto – literally Way of the Gods – is a form of animism where gods pervade all aspects of life and natural phenomena, including the wind, sun, moon, water, mountains and trees. Shinto underlies the deep appreciation of beauty in nature and the changing of seasons at the heart of Japanese customs & lifestyle. (Referred from National Gallery of Victoria)
 

Nature is full of surprises and wisdom. Throughout our experience of several lockdowns, we
had to adopt new ways of living and communication with family and friends but the ways of
nature were unaffected. In our limited lifestyle, I learned so much from my cats in the house and from the birds, insects, fish, flowers and trees outside.

 

In this exhibition, I would like to share the wisdom I receive from animals and nature through Japanese ink paintings which is my most comfortable way of expression and communication.
