We are pleased to announce an exhibition I’ll make you a cherry blossom necklace by Gabrielle Kroese on April 21 (Sat) & 22 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Gabrielle Kroese is a visual artist specialized in painting, drawing and collages, based in The Netherlands.
Gabrielle creates new stories of pictures that she selects out of the daily flow visual information. She collects these images in a picture file. She’s fascinated by what determines your gaze. What makes you see that one image? Remember that specific image? How does someone else sees that picture? And can it be influenced?
In her paintings she investigates a combination of a figurative image with abstract color fields. It’s fascinating to note how this combination reinforces each part of the painting and guide the way of seeing.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
“I’ll make you a cherry blossom necklace” shows photo prints that I made during my stay at Studio Kura in combination with colored surfaces. The colors are picked blindfolded from Haishoku Soukan (a dictionary of color combinations) originated by Sanzo Wada.
A research into how they reinforce, influence, maybe irritate one another.
