Wither or Flourish
April 8 – May 31, 2016
Wither or Flourish depicts Japanese culture by maintaining traditional beauty and then adapting it in alternative ways. The paintings and sculptures capture simplicity and elegance. Flowers, geishas, samurais, and kimonos are some of the many elements present within the show.
The combination of the ornate quality of the geisha, the delicacy of the floral components, and the stability of the samurai warriors highly represent the beautiful complexity of Japanese culture.
