Presentation
Japandi: shared aesthetics and influences, at browngrotta arts in Wilton, CT, explores approaches shared between Japanese and Scandinavian cultures through contemporary art. The show features 39 fiber and ceramic artists from Japan, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a 144-page, full-color catalog #52 of the same title. Receive a complimentary catalog with any purchase of artwork from the show.

Japandi is a hybrid union of Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetic approaches appreciated for its exceptional craftsmanship, simplicity and minimalism, reverence for nature and natural, sustainable materials, and the beauty of embracing imperfection. This union evokes a visual and physical sense of calm and tranquility. Japandi: shared aesthetics and influences features works that are complementary in approach and execution. “I have exhibited with Japanese artists,” says artist Jane Balsgaard (Denmark). "They come from the other side of the world, where the sun rises when it is evening here. They come from a culture so different from our own, but for reasons which I cannot explain, there is an inner attraction to the same materials and expressions.”

Artists include Jane Balsgaard (Denmark), Birgit Birkkjær (Denmark), Gjertrud Hals (Norway), Norie Hatakeyama (Japan), Ane Henriksen (Denmark), Agneta Hobin (Finland), Kazue Honma (Japan), Mutsumi Iwasaki (Japan), Kiyomi Iwata (Japan), Tomika Kawata (Japan), Masakazu Kobayashi (Japan), Naomi Kobayashi (Japan), Yasuhisa Kohyama (Japan), Markku Kosonen (Finland), Kyoko Kumai (Japan), Åse Ljones (Norway), Kari Lønning (Norwegian-American), Keiji Nio (Japan), Mia Olsson (Sweden), Gudrun Pagter (Denmark), Toshio Sekiji (Japan), Hisako Sekijima (Japan), Kay Sekimachi (Japanese-American), Naoko Serino (Japan), Hiroyuki Shindo (Japan), Jin-Sook So (Korea/Sweden), Grethe Sørensen (Denmark), Kari Stiansen (Denmark), Noriko Takamiya (Japan), Hideho Tanaka (Japan), Tsuruko Tanikawa (Japan), Chiyoko Tanaka (Japan), Jun Tomita (Japan), Eva Vargo (Sweden), Ulla-Maija Vikman (Finland), Merja Winqvist (Finland), Grethe Wittrock (Denmark), Jiro Yonezawa (Japan), Masako Yoshida (Japan)
