Installation by Dr Shoso Shimbo

In the tradition of Ogata Kōrin’s (1658-1716) National Treasure screens Red and White Plum Blossoms, Melbourne-based Sogetsu master Dr Shoso Shimbo has created an inspiringly beautiful Spring installation of red and white plum blossoms in ceramic artist Mitsuo Shoji’s powerful ceramic vessel ‘Many Wishes’. Echoing Kōrin, the installation shows ‘…the artist’s intimate knowledge of how a plum tree grows …in their writhing forms and tangle of shoots and branches.’ (Read More…)

We invite you to share this spring experience in the gallery while the blossoms are fresh.
The Gallery is open Tuesday ~ Friday from 11am to 5pm
