My Bright Abyss: Paintings & Prints
Featuring the work of Makoto Fujimura
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 12 at 6:00pm
In collaboration with Covenant Presbyterian Church (Nashville), St. George’s is pleased to announce the exhibition of work by globally-renowned contemporary artist Makoto Fujimura at the Bradford Gallery. The exhibition, entitled My Bright Abyss: Paintings & Prints, includes works shown publicly for the first time as well as Van Nuys monotypes and Silence and Beauty, a diptych made with gesso and mineral pigments. Fujimura comments that the paintings in My Bright Abyss: Paintings & Prints came out of a period of severe darkness in his life. However, when looking at these works recently to consider them for the show, he was surprised by the “brightness of their countenance.” Makoto Fujimura and his wife, Haejin, will be speaking during the free opening reception which will take place on Thursday, October 12 from 6:00 until 7:30pm. Fujimura’s exhibition will be shown through March 31, 2024.
