i am replacing the pieces sold from cherry blossom montage (21/12"x12" canvases) with cherry blossom summer. the new pieces are being integrated into the original piece, evolving the work and again, highlighting the impact the audience has on the the artist and art work. i believe i will continue this idea with another exhibit space when this exhibit is over, continuing the transformation of the piece as the audience participates.

Japanese Friendship Garden
Thursday January 31, 2013
Art, artist, music, appetizers, wine bar... all set amid the beautiful, tea lighted, Japanese Friendship Garden San Diego.
Reception night only, my large gestural nests will be on display in the garden. I will be on hand to sign poster scrolls and discuss art. A pair of my very painted artist paints worn during the creation of these paintings, will be up for silent auction during the reception with the money benefiting the wonderful Japanese Gardens.
Come view my interpretation of the Japanese Friendship Gardens created in large gestural paintings and stone art work; Creating A Storm; Sakura Fubuki

Cherry Blossom Montage
21) 21"x21" canvas paintings
Japanese Friendship Garden San Diego
Sakura Fubuki Exhibit 2/1/13-4/28/13
artists and audiences are in a symbiotic relationship. the artist may paint his interpretation and intentions but the audience has a tremendous impact on whether that art work (and the artist) is viewed and acknowledged. the intent too is based on personal interpretation. though the artist may have a specific idea of his intentions, the viewer carries with him, his own, thus altering the vision on a personal level (galleries, curators, writers...all bring with them their personal interpretations). the audience has the power of determining the status of an artist, and painting and also determining the interpretation of the artists own interpretation.
during this exhibit the 12"x12" paintings will be for sale, either singularly or in groups. unlike normal exhibits that ask work not be removed until the end of the exhibit, i request work be removed immediately after purchase. by allowing the audience to purchase the art work during the exhibit, and thus re-configuring the artwork, the art process and the artwork, evolves. it is part of the process and the art experience, just as the original painting is a process, so is the viewing, selling, and removal of pieces that make for a 'new' piece, interpretation and experience. it gives a transparency to the symbiotic relationship of artist and audience. i am really excited by this concept.
