AN AWAKENING is an exhibition of paintings by contemporary Japanese artist Tomoko Tsuruta. A transnational painter, Tsuruta’s colourful visions and biomorphic forms which reflect her fascination. Schooled in the tradition of Chinese ink painting, the artist embraces the volatile fusion of ink and pigments on rice paper. By staying mindful and aware during her painting process, Tsuruta continues to push her work towards unexpectedly beautiful directions.
The painter states “AN AWAKENING” is a series of her paintings inspired by situations and are awaken that have never been properly explored or intentionally expressed. This awakening reflects us to identify what, who, where and from where we are. Tsuruta’s expression of awakening in herself is also what resonates with her audience.
