Group Show at Morpeth Contemporary

Morpeth Contemporary is pleased to present the paintings of artists Takashi Harada and Kaé Sato, along with the sculpture of John McDevitt.

Introduced to the gallery by fellow artist and mentor Makoto Fujimura, Harada and Sato both practice Nihonga. Nihonga—literally meaning “Japanese painting”—developed in about 1900 to differentiate Japanese works from Western style paintings.   It is often characterized by its materials, including: natural pigments derived from minerals, shells, corals, and even semi-precious stones; metals like gold and silver leaf; and the use of “sumi” ink, wood, silk, and paper.
