‘Living Together,’ a solo exhibition by Suiko Ohta, Kyoshin-kai, Japanese painter
The Kyoshin-kai is a private painting school that was established with an emphasis on the desire to learn painting with a straightforward heart, like bamboo. A concept known as “Kyoshin Tankai.” “Kyoshin” is a state of mind that allows you to accept what you are, without prejudice or stubbornness. “Tankai” can be translated as a refreshing heart with no clutter. In other words, calm feelings.
Counting from the first Shutei Ohta (Sho-zan), Suiko Ohta is a fourth-generation fine-art painter who is maintaining the tradition of her family.
Suiko Ohta runs her own painting school and mentors many disciples, both domestically and internationally. Among them are many diplomats and ambassadors’ wives. Many foreigners have come to know the true world of Japanese beauty through serious study of Japanese painting by attending Suiko Ohta’s painting school.
Now, Suiko Ohta will hold her solo exhibition, entitled “Living Together.”
Suiko Ohta realized that people all over the world are facing difficulties such as the COVID-19 pandemic and problems with foreign countries, and she revisited major themes such as the importance of helping each other, gratitude, a return to the magnificence of nature, and reincarnation. Her exhibition illustrates the passion of Japanese painters.
At the exhibition, as the four seasons change, you can feel the depth of Japanese art in the paintings and ink drawings created with a delicate touch. You can see the world of Japanese beauty supported by tradition and formality.
