Wenting Tao (China) Residence: August, 2016

Wenting Tao is an art student at Swarthmore College, PA, USA. At Swarthmore she studied photography, painting and graphic design, and has held school level solo exhibitions.

She is interested in the exploring pictorial gestures with temperamental qualities, and how certain honest treatments of common faults like vulgarity, disgrace and fear can serve as a remedy to the modern mind’s illusions of perfectionism, refusal of mortality and denial of ego.

At Studio Kura, she would like to study the emotional expressiveness of shodo(calligraphy), sumi-e and other Japanese visual traditions, breathe in the natural environment and community culture of Itoshima, and undertake a series of multimedia works in response to that.
