Library Exhibits Contemporary Work of Japanese Artist

     The contemporary artwork of award-winning Japanese artist Ritsuko Sato will be on display in the fifth floor Heritage Room of the Weinberg Memorial Library through April 25.  

     Sato describes her work as a display of “balance between the physical resistances between diverse media such as oil, acrylic, raw pigments, resin, paper, canvas and plywood.”

     Curator Kazuaki Kishimoto of the Nagi Museum of Contemporary Art describes Sato’s work as unpredictable and never subtle.

     “Her often deformed motifs dynamically combine chaotic and random strokes with bright vibrant colors. The effects are almost childlike in their innocence, revealing Sato’s unique impressions and interpretations of the world around her,” said Kishimoto.

     Sato has exhibited her work in numerous galleries in Japan and the United States, including the Ira Pinto Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Philadelphia International Institute and Gallery in Philadelphia.

     The exhibit is open to the public and free of charge during library hours. For additional information, contact Michael Knies, associate professor and special collections librarian, at 941-6341.
