"The Great Wave, Silence and Song: Capturing the Forces of Nature.”
There was discussion of Makoto Fujimura’s work, two pieces of which were on display in the gallery—vibrant abstract paintings of mineral pigment and the translucent gold leaf that has become his trademark.
Divine grace is arguably the central thematic current that pulls much of Fujimura’s work, and the spiritual ambience at play on the canvas is, in person, unmistakable and breathtaking. But there was more than just the artwork on display that lent Saturday evening’s talk an aura of the metaphysical.
