Toyama Etsuko (遠山悦子) Exhibition at Suzuki Atelier (アトリエスズキ) - (2011/03)
This tempera exhibition (2011/03/03-12) by Toyama Etsuko (遠山悦子展) at Suzuki Atelier (アトリエスズキ) consisted of many very beautiful pictures of sakura trees - such as the one on the promotional card. Apparently all the trees are actual trees the artist encountered in traveling around Japan for a year while working on this collection There was an amazing depth to the pictures - I found myself studying them up close to see if they were actually three-dimensional. このテンペラ展は、絵葉書見たいな美しい桜の木の絵でした。画家が、一年間日本を回って、書きました。まず、現場でスケッチで、後で和紙に美しい卵テンペラの絵を書く。
