Shintaro and Yoshiko Nakahara‘s latest exhibition, Affection, looks to the current season of spring in their first home, Japan. This is a special time of the Sakura or cherry blossom flowering season, one of celebration associated with new beginnings. Cherry blossoms are a symbolic flower in Japan, representing renewal and the fleeting nature of life. Affection is imbued with a sense of celebration and abundance as Sakura blossoms burst forth across this series of new paintings from the Nakaharas. Shintaro and Yoshiko work in collaboration in their delicate and distinctive style: Shintaro working with his bold colours and fluid forms, which references the motions of calligraphy, while Yoshiko layers intricate ink work to complete their dynamic paintings.
Opening: Saturday 14 May 11am-1pm
