We are very happy to continue our Special Edition concept for young collectors with Rinko Kawauchi. She has created a special edition work from her new series “Ametsuchi”.
Following the example set by our Experiment Edition by Rudolf Bonvie we are able to offer an editioned print by Rinko Kawauchi for young collectors at our webshop.
Rinko Kawauchi’s series, “Ametsuchi” – which translates as “heaven” and “earth” – explores how mankind relates to time. Vast landscape pictures in colours depict the traditional, controlled burning of farmland, demonstrating the destructive yet rejuvenating power of fire. The series of fire pictures are littered with abstract and calm images of stellar constellations and religious rituals.
In the earthy colours of her landscapes, the artist creates an “elementary simplicity [...] like fields of colour in a Rothko painting” (Florence Waters).
Interwoven with the images of recurring agricultural and religious rituals and starry skies, Rinko Kawauchi conjures up a connection between the past and the present, the spiritual world and reality, between Heaven and Earth.
