We are pleased to announce an exhibition Heavy Ground by JP Neang on April 21 (Sat) & 22 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
JP Neang is an Artist & Creative Director, from The Bay Area, Caliornia. JP’s work has been showcased in various galleries in the US and internationally. She continues to push the boundaries of drawings, landscapes devoid of color with images that evoke stillness and playfulness. JP’s passion in the creative world extends beyond her art. She has taught creative education (Design Thinking, Creative Engineering, & the Arts) for 8 years working to inspire the world with her current project called “Imaginary Atlas”, an initiative to bring back the act of creating to children on a global platform.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
A micro showcase exhibiting works imaginative and inspired landscapes of Itoshima. It is titled “Heavy Ground” to focus a viewers perspective from a birds eye view. The greatest weight of life rests in the palm of our hands, which is both literal and symbolic in this showcase. I hope my works will challenge the limits of human fragility and give greater significance to all life on earth.
