Kenji Yoshida: Constructing Calm
22nd April -17th May 2013
Using the work of Japanese artist Kenji Yoshida, we will explore responses to conflict and war.
Modernist and environmental artists, such as Georgia O'Keefe and Richard Long, will throw light on the universal power of symbolic visual language and provide some interesting links to Yoshida's work.
Responding to the historical context of Yoshida's work (WWII), we will use a range of natural materials with students constructing sculptural antidotes to conflict and aggression.
Join us in exploring how experiences of war can help shape an artist's work.
