Traditional Japanese painting meets modern technique in this exhibit of Takashi Tomo-oka's works. The artist's photographs have been described as contemporary nihonga, since he uses a digital camera rather than a brush to capture plants and then prints the images on handmade paper. The result is a simplified version of the plants' essential form, reminiscent of the 18th century Rinpa decorative sensibility. Take a look at six beautiful scroll-mounted photographic works on display. The museum will host related programs with the exhibit, including an installment of Fusion Fridays and Art and Coffee, plus a curator's tour.
