The Circle of Japanese Transformation
This painting was completed after artist’s first visit to Japan in 2018. The circle was chosen as a background for Japanese- inspired composition featuring cherry blossom, Japanese red crown crane (a symbol of beauty and longevity) and a young women being transformed by what she sees. Only three colours were used to pay tribute to Japanese purity and minimalism. The work acts as a metaphor for artist’s own transformation after living and researching Japanese culture in Kyoto, Japan during summer 2018. Due to popular demand, the painting has been made into a series of limited edition prints. This is the first time the original has been made available for sale.
