After almost 3 years in Japan it will be time for us to say またね (Matane) (see you later), if everything goes as planned we will move back to Montréal in July. I will be very sad leaving this beautiful country that has given me so much inspiration and there are many good friends that I will miss dearly, that's why I will not say 'sayonara' (goodbye), I will say 'Matane' (see you later). I really hope to be able to travel back to Japan to visit my friends in this wonderful country in the future.
Many of you have been asking me for this so before the big move I am organizing one last solo exhibition right here in Nagoya! The exhibition is titled ‘またね (Matane)’ and will be held at the gorgeous Esplanade Gallery which is located in a beautiful, traditional Japanese building close to Endoji Shotengai shopping street and about a 5 minute walk from Nagoya International Center. The exhibition will run from June 2-7 (Tuesday-Sunday) and I will be there every day during opening hours (Tue.-Fri. 13:00-18:00 Sat. 12:00-18:00 Sun. 12:00-16:00).
On display will be a series of Japan inspired pieces both on wood panels and traditional Japanese washi paper as well as a series of prints and cards from previous bodies of work. For Japan based collectors this will be a wonderful opportunity to add one of my gorgeous pieces to your collection without having to deal with complicated and expensive shipping arrangements.
I am looking forward to spending some quality time with all of you please mark your calendars and come say hi at Esplanade Gallery in June!
