An Exploration into Japanese Aesthetics

Chris Sora exhibition invitation September 2011

September 2-25, 2011
Opening reception Friday September 2, 7-9:30pm

When it comes to appreciating life and art, the Japanese sometimes have different priorities and perspectives from what we have in the West.  Many of these concepts were developed from Buddhism and Zen.  As such, this approach to beauty may give us another insight as to how we live our lives.  I have chosen to explain five of these perspectives through my pottery.  Please enjoy Wabi, Sabi, Shibui, Yugen and Suki.
