Shinji Ohya uses traditional Nihonga techniques to depict gold fish, carp, and seasonal flowers. The motifs which emerge from his canvases have a cultivated elegance that draws the eye, recalling the solemnity of wind rippling across still water and the unceasing changing of the seasons. We hope you will enjoy witnessing these works by a Nihonga artist who specializes in portraying the quiet lustre of life.
