The experiences of the expressive painters Marie Boiseaubert and Tomoko Uchida in the Land of the Rising Sun provide visitors to the exhibition with insights into this fascinating culture.
For the 2nd time Marie Boiseaubert shows the interested public her current work. Years ago, walking the Camino de Santiago, she enjoyed the diversity and beauty of nature there. Her spiritual experiences on the pilgrimage path led her to the Land of the Rising Sun, where she went on pilgrimage years later on the smallest main island of Shikoku. Passing forests, mountains, gently rippling water springs, Buddhist temples - one with herself and her surroundings - the basis for a new creative phase was formed. In oil, ink and with pigments, Marie expresses her personal experiences in this unique culture. She studied at the Visual Art School in Basel, where she met Tomoko Uchida in 2007. Marie's great love for Japan deepened the contact and friendship between the two painters. Tomoko Uchida spent her childhood and youth in her native country surrounded by the traditions and arts of ancient times in modern Japan. Inspired by her longing for the mysteries and surprises of the seasonal changes, their recurring natural spectacles and native landscapes, Tomoko wants to penetrate to the roots of Japanese culture with her paintings in oil, ink, acrylic, watercolor or egg tempera in various formats.
