The Ema Show 2016, Hatos Bar, Tokyo
Opening Reception: Saturday February 13
I will have 3 new works hanging in a trio of shows organized by Hellion Gallery. The first installment will be hosted by Hatos in Tokyo. The roster of artists is truly impressive, and all pieces have been painted on wooden Ema plaques.
From Hellion Gallery:
Ema are small wooden plaques on which Shinto worshipers write their prayers or wishes. The ema are then left hanging up at the shrine, where the kami (spirits or gods) receive them. They bear various pictures, often of animals or other Shinto imagery, and many have the word gan’i (願意), meaning “wish”, written along the side. In ancient times people would donate horses to the shrines for good favor; over time this was transferred to a wooden plaque with a picture of a horse, and later still to the various wooden plaques sold today for the same purpose.
