6 weeks - March 26th start date
This is hopefully a collective independent study course. A comparative study of the artistic traditions of India, China, and Japan, and how you incorporate this new knowledge into your own work may be emphasized. We can focus on the visual relationship of works of art to Confucianism, Buddhism, Kami-no michi, and Taoism, but we do not have to.
Field trips: TBA.
Nozomi Kato is a Professor of Art at LaGuardia Community College of the City University of New York (AS Drawing, LaGuardia; BFA Painting, Cornell University; MFA Photography, School of the Art Institute of Chicago). As an interdisciplinary artist based in NYC and Japan, she explores fluidity in human color perception (i.e. the enigmatic relationship between colors and their names) in relation to her personal take on disasters (i.e. Fukushima).
