Rody Luton (Netherlands/UK)
“Porphyra”
Exhibition style: Watercolour & graphite on paper
A British/New Zealand visual artist based in Amsterdam, Rody explored her paintings inspired by the floating Nori farming view in Yanagawa. The story of Nori is a story of transmutation, of crossing boundaries and borders, of shifting across sea and land, wet and dry, time and space, changing colour and form. It connects to her interest in exploring the transitory zones between different environments, surfaces and ecologies.
