Rikka Ayasaki- Paris based artist – In her oil paintings as well as in her ink artworks, the artist has transposed the Japanese traditional art of sumi-e (ink wash painting) into the contemporary universe of Western art. The ink paintings « Through the window » explore all the possible degrees of transparency of black and white. On the heavenly and vibrant paintings of the adequately named « Passion » series, the spectacular formations of clouds illuminate the sky and space-time with their warm and generous colours. The result is brimming with delicacy and vibrates with hidden richness: to be discovered… in silence an intimacy. (©Adagp)
