[Art Exhibition] ART Colours Vol. 28 Asuka Tsutsumi Art Exhibition – Spring Festival of Blessing –
At the Park Hotel Tokyo, we welcome our guests with hospitality in the form of “arrangement”, one of Japan’s aesthetic values, expressed through the medium of art. As part of this initiative, we hold series of art exhibition, “ART colours”, representing the four seasons of Japan. On this 28th exhibition, we will be representing spring through the works of artist Asuka Tsutsumi.
From ancient times, the Japanese have expressed the coming of spring in a variety of ways. Spring is when plants put forth new shoots under gentle, soft sunlight, and many kinds of animals burst into action — the season when all things are full of energy and life itself shines brightly. The coming of this season, filled with positive life force, is celebrated with spring festivals in every corner of Japan. This exhibition will display works by Asuka Tsutsumi, expressing in dots the source of that energy — “spring light”.
Come and experience, through the works of Asuka Tsutsumi, the sights and symbols of a spring where vital energies gather to create a rich new future, bringing dreams and hope.
