Rikai (Understanding) @ Collie Art Gallery
Mar 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Rikai (Understanding) @ Collie Art Gallery | Collie | Western Australia | Australia

Head to the Collie Art Gallery to see this unique collection of woodblock prints by renowned master printmaker Hiroshi Tomihari (b. 1936). Named as a Japanese ‘National Treasure’, Tomihari specialises in a style of printmaking known as modern Moku Hanga. Repetitive rhythmic contours that allude to the female form or a single standing female figure often feature in Tomihari’s compositions. Recognisable landmarks and wildlife are also popular motifs. Tuart trees, kangaroos, Wave Rock or the Perth city skyline reflect his many visits to Australia. The exhibition also includes kimonos that will enhance the Japanese ambience of the show.

Exhibition on show 10am-4pm, Thursdays-Mondays, 25 February – 9 April 2017.

This exhibition will open at 6pm on the 24th February 2017 at the Collie Art Gallery and will be on display until the 9th April.
