«Glimpses of my garden» Ai Akino at Galerie Claudia Geiser
Tea blossoms, sacred bamboo or snow-covered pine branches: Japanese artist Ai Akino sees these and many other subjects when she looks into her garden in Kyoto. She paints in the classic Japanese Nihonga style using precious pigments, inks and gold leaf. With her opulent colour palette the artist captures the beauty of Japan’s plant world and its seasonal changes and creates paintings full of life and depth. Akino’s first exhibition outside Japan offers a rare opportunity to experience the work of an extraordinary Nihonga artist in Switzerland.
