Pure | Japanese Collective

The PURE exhibition at Thereza Pedrosa Gallery in Asolo runs from Saturday, November 27 through Sunday, December 25, or you can follow it online at https://therezapedrosa.com/pure-japanese-collective-exhibition

"Traveling takes us to places, people, languages and cultures unknown to us. Traveling enriches us in mind and spirit. But discovering the world can happen thousands of miles away or just a few feet from home. The important thing is not where we are, but to be ready to observe the world with a heart open to new discoveries and a curious mind. This group exhibition takes us to explore the richness of Japanese culture through the work of artists Kazumi Nagano, Mineri Matsuura, Nahoko Fujimoto, Mariko Sumioka and Yoko Takirai | Pietro Pellitteri.
Established artists with works present in the most important collections of contemporary jewelry in the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Alice and Louis Koch Rings Collection in Switzerland and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York. They come to Asolo bringing all the delicacy and purity of their works, made in various materials: from the most precious, platinum, through gold and silver, to paper. Each of these artists is unique in their artistic expression, but they all share a deep connection with the sublime essence of Japanese thought and tradition."
