Opening June 25th, 2022 at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, California is artist Ryoko Kaneta’s solo exhibition, “In Our Nature.”
A person of the primary figures of Japan’s up-and-coming technology of artists, Kaneta will be creating her U.S. solo debut with “In Our Character.” The Tokyo-centered artist paints according to historic Japanese philosophies, such as the believed that God dwells in all beings. Her descriptive paintings are embedded in historic cultures still exist as fleeting spectacles of mother nature. The artist applies acrylic paint to canvas and masterfully blends to build an graphic that actively develops and moves with cyclicality. Her artworks propose a passing of time and rejoice nature’s ephemerality.
Kaneta uses the female figure to personify components of mother nature, like the phenomenon of weather conditions and dramatic seasonal transformation, equally of which are depicted dreamily in the artist’s landscapes. These sceneries, some of which Kaneta has visited, have held individual resonance for the artist. They have inspired her ambition to properly categorical the historical past and tales of a position. This way of functioning is akin to the attitudes of the Rinpa and Kanō Schools, approaching painting as a result of scenes of character portrayed and celebrated in historic Japanese literature.
