Makoto Fujimura: "Re-membrance"
About the exhibition:
“Re-membrance” is a monumental solo exhibition by Makoto Fujimura.
In “Re-membrance”, Fujimura presents three new major works of transcendent beauty created out of traumas of our times: the 9/11 terrorist attacks (marking its 20 year anniversary this September), the 3/11/2011 Great Tohoku earthquake, tsunami and ongoing nuclear meltdown, and the Columbine High School massacre in 1999.
About the artist:
Fujimura is an American-born artist of Japanese roots whose refractive surfaces using the traditional Nihonga (Japanese style painting) materials, fused with space-age materials, form a uniquely contemporary expression. Fujimura is a leading figure in the “slow art” movement, with his work being described by David Brooks of the New York Times as “a small rebellion against the quickening of time”.
