Akie’s brushwork preserves the natural features of the stones on which she works, but also lends an eye to the spirit that resides within them.
The artist supplements the images she perceives by researching different living beings, including their ecology and features. The process of breathing intricate life into the stones imbues them with respect for those strands of our grand earth that stretch unbroken from the beginning of time to the present day. Seizan Gallery is proud to deliver this first solo exhibition of Akie’s intensive practice.
