Katherine Steichen Rosing & Couzi Ohsono

Show ran from 4/2/2008 to 5/3/2008

“Silences,”  paintings and sculptures

Ma, an integral concept in Japanese art, is the expression of space and silence, and the core of Couzi Ohsono‘s evocative paintings and small sculptures. Spaces between the forms in art are like “that little bit between each note–silences which give the form” -Isaac Stern.  Katherine Steichen Rosing‘s quiet rhythmic acrylic paintings of forests and patterns of water are created using texture and color to explore cycles of transformation, growth and decay.

Ohsono, from Tokyo, and Rosing, a Wisconsin artist, met through a cultural exchange between artists in the U.S. and Japan. Their abstract paintings communicate, overcoming any language barriers.
